Universality of charge transport in weakly interacting fermionic systems

  title={Universality of charge transport in weakly interacting fermionic systems},
  author={Alessandro Giuliani and Vieri Mastropietro and Marcello Porta},
  journal={arXiv: Mathematical Physics},
We review two rigorous results on the transport properties of weakly interacting fermionic systems on $2d$ lattices, in the linear response regime. First, we discuss the universality of the longitudinal conductivity for interacting graphene. Then, we focus on the transverse conductivity of general weakly interacting gapped fermionic systems, and we establish its universality. This last result proves the stability of the integer quantum Hall effect against weak interactions. The proofs are based… 



Universality of the Hall Conductivity in Interacting Electron Systems

We prove the quantization of the Hall conductivity for general weakly interacting gapped fermionic systems on two-dimensional periodic lattices. The proof is based on fermionic cluster expansion

Universality of Conductivity in Interacting Graphene

The Hubbard model on the honeycomb lattice describes charge carriers in graphene with short range interactions. While the interaction modifies several physical quantities, like the value of the Fermi

The 2D Hubbard model on the honeycomb lattice

We consider the 2D Hubbard model on the honeycomb lattice, as a model for a single layer graphene sheet in the presence of screened Coulomb interactions. At half filling and weak enough coupling, we

Quantization of Hall Conductance for Interacting Electrons on a Torus

We consider interacting, charged spins on a torus described by a gapped Hamiltonian with a unique groundstate and conserved local charge. Using quasi-adiabatic evolution of the groundstate around a

Universality of One-Dimensional Fermi Systems, I. Response Functions and Critical Exponents

The critical behavior of one-dimensional interacting Fermi systems is expected to display universality features, called Luttinger liquid behavior. Critical exponents and certain thermodynamic

Absence of interaction corrections in the optical conductivity of graphene

The exact vanishing of the interaction corrections to the zero temperature optical conductivity of undoped graphene in the presence of weak short-range interactions is rigorously established. Our

Perturbation theory of the Fermi surface in a quantum liquid. A general quasiparticle formalism and one-dimensional systems

We develop a perturbation theory formalism for the theory of the Fermi surface in a Fermi liquid of particles interacting via a bounded short-range repulsive pair potential. The formalism is based on

Effect of electron-electron interactions on the conductivity of clean graphene.

The perturbation theory in the interaction parameter g for the electron self-energy is analyzed, the optical conductivity is derived from the quantum kinetic equation, and the exact result is obtained in the limit when g<<1<< g|lnomega|.

Universality in quantum Hall systems

Coulomb interaction, ripples, and the minimal conductivity of graphene.

We argue that the unscreened Coulomb interaction in graphene provides a positive, universal, and logarithmic correction to scaling of zero-temperature conductivity with frequency. The combined effect
