# Strong Coulomb interactions in the problem of Majorana modes in a wire of the nontrivial topological class BDI

@article{Aksenov2019StrongCI, title={Strong Coulomb interactions in the problem of Majorana modes in a wire of the nontrivial topological class BDI}, author={S V Aksenov and Anton O. Zlotnikov and M. S. Shustin}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2019} }

In this study, the problem of strong Coulomb interactions in topological superconducting wire is analyzed by means of the density-matrix-renormalization-group (DMRG) approach. To analyze properties of edge states in the BDI-class structure a quantity called Majorana polarization is used. From its dependence on wire length and an entanglement-spectrum degeneracy topological phase diagrams are obtained. The DMRG calculations for the Shubin-Vonsovsky-type model of the wire show the transformation…
