Non-Fermi liquid at the FFLO quantum critical point
When a 2D superconductor is subjected to a strong in-plane magnetic field, Zeeman polarization of the Fermi surface can give rise to inhomogeneous FFLO order with a spatially modulated gap. Further
Zero Sound and Plasmon Modes for Non-Fermi Liquids
We derive the quantum Boltzmann equation (QBE) by using generalized Landau-interaction parameters, obtained through the nonequilibrium Green’s function technique. This is a generalization of the
Robust quantum transport at particle-hole symmetry
We study quantum transport in disordered systems with particle-hole symmetric Hamiltonians. The particle-hole symmetry is spontaneously broken after averaging with respect to disorder, and the
Raman response and shear viscosity in the non-Fermi liquid phase of Luttinger semimetals.
Luttinger semimetals represent materials with strong spin-orbit coupling, harbouring doubly-degenerate quadratic band touchings at the Brillouin zone center. In the presence of Coulomb interactions,
Floquet scattering of quadratic band-touching semimetals through a time-periodic potential well
To analyze the time-periodic Hamiltonian, this work assumes a non-adiabatic limit where the Floquet theorem is applicable, and chalk out the transmission and shot noise spectra of the QBT semimetals.
Transport in the non-Fermi liquid phase of isotropic Luttinger semimetals
Luttinger semimetals have quadratic band crossings at the Brillouin zone-center in three spatial dimensions. Coulomb interactions in a model that describes these systems stabilize a non-trivial fixed


Quantum Phase Transitions of Metals in Two Spatial Dimensions: II. Spin density Wave Order
We present a field-theoretic renormalization group analysis of Abanov and Chubukov’s model of the spin density wave transition in two dimensional metals. We identify the independent field scale and
A controlled expansion for certain non-Fermi liquid metals
The destruction of Fermi liquid behavior when a gapless Fermi surface is coupled to a fluctuating gapless boson field is studied theoretically. This problem arises in a number of different contexts
Perturbative non-Fermi liquids from dimensional regularization
We devise a dimensional regularization scheme for quantum field theories with Fermi surface to study scaling behaviour of non-Fermi liquid states in a controlled approximation. Starting from a Fermi
Anisotropic non-Fermi liquids
We study non-Fermi-liquid states that arise at the quantum critical points associated with the spin density wave (SDW) and charge density wave (CDW) transitions in metals with twofold rotational
Non-Fermi-liquid d-wave metal phase of strongly interacting electrons
It is shown that this remarkable quantum phase is the ground state of a reasonable microscopic Hamiltonian—the usual t–J model with electron kinetic energy t and two-spin exchange J supplemented with a frustrated electron ‘ring-exchange’ term, which is examined extensively on the square lattice two-leg ladder.
Superconducting instability in non-Fermi liquids
We use renormalization group (RG) analysis and dimensional regularization techniques to study potential superconductivity-inducing four-fermion interactions in systems with critical Fermi surfaces of
Cooper pairing in non-Fermi liquids
States of matter with a sharp Fermi surface but no well-defined Landau quasiparticles arise in a number of physical systems. Examples include (i) quantum critical points associated with the onset of
Quantum-critical theory of the spin-fermion model and its application to cuprates: Normal state analysis
We present the full analysis of the normal state properties of the spin-fermion model near the antiferromagnetic instability in two dimensions. The model describes low-energy fermions interacting
Quantum theory of a nematic Fermi fluid
We develop a microscopic theory of the electronic nematic phase proximate to an isotropic Fermi liquid in both two and three dimensions. Explicit expressions are obtained for the small amplitude
Nonperturbative behavior of the quantum phase transition to a nematic Fermi fluid
We discuss shape (Pomeranchuk) instabilities of the Fermi surface of a two-dimensional Fermi system using bosonization. We consider in detail the quantum critical behavior of the transition of a
