We show that under very general assumptions the adiabatic approximation of the phase of the zeta-regularized determinant of the imaginary-time Schrodinger operator with periodic Hamiltonian is equal to the Berry phase.

Fermion determinants and the Berry phase
Following an observation that certain fermion operators are parametrisable by a holonomy variable by which they may be 'rotated' into a 'free' Dirac operator, the authors show that their determinantsExpand
Appearance of Gauge Structure in Simple Dynamical Systems
Generalizing a construction of Berry and Simon, we show that non-Abelian gauge fields arise in the adiabatic development of simple quantum mechanical systems. Characteristics of the gauge fields areExpand
Holonomy, the Quantum Adiabatic Theorem, and Berry's Phase
It is shown that the "geometrical phase factor" recently found by Berry in his study of the quantum adiabatic theorem is precisely the holonomy in a Hermitian line bundle since the adiabatic theoremExpand
On the adiabatic theorem for nonself-adjoint Hamiltonians
The authors consider the evolution of a two-level system driven by a nonself-adjoint Hamiltonian H( in t) and treat the adiabatic limit in to 0. While adiabatic theorem-like results do not hold trueExpand

Topological Calculation of the Phase of the Determinant of a Non Self-Adjoint Elliptic Operator
We study the zeta-regularized determinant of a non self-adjoint elliptic operator on a closed odd-dimensional manifold. We show that, if the spectrum of the operator is symmetric with respect to theExpand
Berry phase for a ferromagnet with fractional spin
We study the double exchange model on two lattice sites with one conduction electron in the limit of an infinite Hund's interaction. While this simple problem is exactly solvable, we present anExpand
FAST TRACK COMMUNICATION: The quantum Hall effect in graphene samples and the relativistic Dirac effective action
We study the Euclidean effective action per unit area and the charge density for a Dirac field in a two-dimensional (2D) spatial region, in the presence of a uniform magnetic field perpendicular toExpand
Planar QED at finite temperature and density: Hall conductivity, Berry's phases and minimal conductivity of graphene
We study one-loop effects for massless Dirac fields in two spatial dimensions, coupled to homogeneous electromagnetic backgrounds, both at zero and at finite temperature and density. In the case of aExpand
Symmetrized trace and symmetrized determinant of odd class pseudo-differential operators
Abstract We introduce a new canonical trace on odd class logarithmic pseudo-differential operators on an odd dimensional manifold, which vanishes on commutators. When restricted to the algebra of oddExpand
