Computing superconducting properties starting from an exactly solvable model for a doped Mott insulator stands as a grand challenge. We have recently shown that this can be done starting from the Hatsugai-Kohmoto (HK) model which can be understood generally as the minimal model that breaks the non-local Z 2 symmetry of a Fermi liquid, thereby constituting a new quartic fixed point for Mott physics [Phillips et al., Nature Physics 16, 1175 (2020); Huang et al., Nature Physics (2022)]. In the… 


Discrete symmetry breaking defines the Mott quartic fixed point
Because Fermi liquids are inherently non-interacting states of matter, all electronic levels below the chemical potential are doubly occupied. Consequently, the simplest way of breaking Fermi liquid
Exact theory for superconductivity in a doped Mott insulator
Because the cuprate superconductors are doped Mott insulators, it would be advantageous to solve even a toy model that exhibits both Mottness and superconductivity. We consider the Hatsugai–Kohmoto
Pairing mechanism in multiband superconductors
An analytic solution for renormalization group analysis in multiband superconductors is developed, which agrees with the numerical results exceedingly well and answers the pairing puzzle: electrons form pairs resonating between different bands to compensate the energy penalty for bring them together.
Superconductor–insulator transition in La2 − xSrxCuO4 at the pair quantum resistance
High-temperature superconductivity in copper oxides arises when a parent insulator compound is doped beyond some critical concentration; what exactly happens at this superconductor–insulator
The pseudogap: friend or foe of high T c ?
Although nineteen years have passed since the discovery of high temperature cuprate superconductivity 1, there is still no consensus on its physical origin. This is in large part because of a lack of
Pairing in cuprates from high-energy electronic states
The in-plane optical conductivity of Bi2Sr2CaCu2O 8 + δ films with small carrier density (underdoped) up to large carrier density (overdoped) is derived from accurate reflectivity data. Integrating
Superconductivity-Induced Transfer of In-Plane Spectral Weight in Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ
A blue shift of the ab-plane plasma frequency when the material became superconducting, indicating that the spectral weight was transferred to the infrared range, is observed, in agreement with models in which superconductivity is accompanied by an increased charge carrier spectral weight.
Vanishing of phase coherence in underdoped Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ
Although the binding of electrons into Cooper pairs is essential in forming the superconducting state, its remarkable properties—zero resistance and perfect diamagnetism—require phase coherence among
Importance of phase fluctuations in superconductors with small superfluid density
THE superconducting state of a metal is characterized by a complex order parameter with an amplitude and a phase. In the BCS-Eliashberg mean-field theory1, which is a very good approximation for
