Thermodynamics of the Anderson lattice

The periodic Anderson model is considered in a cubic lattice at half filling in the paramagnetic and antiferromagnetic phases. A Green's-function approximation is introduced that involves a

Heavy-fermion superconductivity: An X-boson treatment

We use the X-boson method to study the heavy-fermion superconductivity phase, employing an extension of the periodic Anderson model in the U=∞ limit with a nearest-neighbor attractive interaction

Pressure-induced superconductor-insulator transition in the spinel compound CuRh2S4.

Resistance measurements in CuRh2S4 under quasihydrostatic pressure are performed, and a pressure-induced superconductor-insulator transition is found, where superconductivity disappears abruptly at a critical pressure P(SI) between 5.0 and 5.6 GPa.

X-boson cumulant approach to the periodic Anderson model

The periodic Anderson model can be studied in the limit U=∞ by employing the Hubbard X operators to project out the unwanted states. We had already studied this problem by employing the cumulant

Superconductivity in the SU(N) Anderson Lattice at U=\infty

We present a mean-field study of superconductivity in a generalized N-channel cubic Anderson lattice at U=\infty taking into account the effect of a nearest-neighbor attraction J. The condition
