    The composite operator T\bar{T} in sinh-Gordon and a series of massive minimal models

    Full text link
    The composite operator T\bar{T}, obtained from the components of the energy-momentum tensor, enjoys a quite general characterization in two-dimensional quantum field theory also away from criticality. We use the form factor bootstrap supplemented by asymptotic conditions to determine its matrix elements in the sinh-Gordon model. The results extend to the breather sector of the sine-Gordon model and to the minimal models M_{2/(2N+3)} perturbed by the operator phi_{1,3}.Comment: 29 page

    Matrix elements of the operator T\bar{T} in integrable quantum field theory

    Full text link
    Recently A. Zamolodchikov obtained a series of identities for the expectation values of the composite operator T\bar{T} constructed from the components of the energy-momentum tensor in two-dimensional quantum field theory. We show that if the theory is integrable the addition of a requirement of factorization at high energies can lead to the exact determination of the generic matrix element of this operator on the asymptotic states. The construction is performed explicitly in the Lee-Yang model.Comment: 22 pages, one reference adde

    Jain states on a torus: an unifying description

    Get PDF
    We analyze the modular properties of the effective CFT description for Jain plateaux corresponding to the fillings nu=m/(2pm+1). We construct its characters for the twisted and the untwisted sector and the diagonal partition function. We show that the degrees of freedom entering the partition function go to complete a Z_{m}-orbifold construction of the RCFT U(1)xSU(m)$ proposed for the Jain states. The resulting extended algebra of the chiral primary fields can be also viewed as a RCFT extension of the U(1)xW(m) minimal models. For m=2 we prove that our model, the TM, gives the RCFT closure of the extended minimal models U(1)xW(2).Comment: 27 pages, Latex, JHEP style, no figure

    Transport properties in bilayer Quantum Hall systems in the presence of a topological defect

    Get PDF
    Following a suggestion given in Phys. Lett. B 571(2003) 621, we show how a bilayer Quantum Hall system at fillings nu =1/p+1 can exhibit a point-like topological defect in its edge state structure. Indeed our CFT theory for such a system, the Twisted Model (TM), gives rise in a natural way to such a feature in the twisted sector. Our results are in agreement with recent experimental findings (Phys. Rev. B 72 (2005) 041305) which evidence the presence of a topological defect in the transport properties of the bilayer system.Comment: 10 pages, 4 figures; talk given by A.

    A new Rational Conformal Field Theory extension of the fully degenerate W_{1+\infty}^{(m)}

    Full text link
    We found new identities among the Dedekind eta-function, the characters of the W_{m} algebra and those of the level 1 affine Lie algebra su(m)_{1}. They allow to characterize the Z_{m}-orbifold of the m-component free bosons u(1)_{K_{m,p}} (our theory TM) as an extension of the fully degenerate representations of W_{1+infty}^{(m)}. In particular, TM is proven to be a Gamma _{theta}-RCFT extension of the chiral fully degenerate W_{1+infty}^{(m)}.Comment: 37 pages, minor revisions, one definition added, no formula or result has been modifie

    Form factors of descendant operators in the massive Lee-Yang model

    Full text link
    The form factors of the descendant operators in the massive Lee-Yang model are determined up to level 7. This is first done by exploiting the conserved quantities of the integrable theory to generate the solutions for the descendants starting from the lowest non-trivial solutions in each operator family. We then show that the operator space generated in this way, which is isomorphic to the conformal one, coincides, level by level, with that implied by the SS-matrix through the form factor bootstrap. The solutions we determine satisfy asymptotic conditions carrying the information about the level that we conjecture to hold for all the operators of the model.Comment: 23 page

    Point-like topological defects in bilayer quantum Hall systems

    Following a suggestion given in Phys. Lett. B 571 (2003) 250, we show how a bilayer Quantum Hall system at fillings nu =m/pm+2 can exhibit a point-like topological defect in its edge state structure. Indeed our CFT theory for such a system, the Twisted Model (TM), gives rise in a natural way to such a feature in the twisted sector. Our results are in agreement with recent experimental findings (cond-mat/0503478) which evidence the presence of a topological defect in the bilayer system.Comment: 9 pages, 3 figure

    CFT description of the Fully Frustrated XY model and phase diagram analysis

    Get PDF
    Following a suggestion given in Nucl. Phys. B 300 (1988)611,we show how the U(1)*Z_{2} symmetry of the fully frustrated XY (FFXY) model on a square lattice can be accounted for in the framework of the m-reduction procedure developed for a Quantum Hall system at "paired states" fillings nu =1 (cfr. Cristofano et al.,Mod. Phys. Lett. A 15 (2000)1679;Nucl. Phys. B 641 (2002)547). The resulting twisted conformal field theory (CFT) with central charge c=2 is shown to well describe the physical properties of the FFXY model. In particular the whole phase diagram is recovered by analyzing the flow from the Z_{2} degenerate vacuum of the c=2 CFT to the infrared fixed point unique vacuum of the c=3/2 CFT. The last theory is known to successfully describe the critical behavior of the system at the overlap temperature for the Ising and vortex-unbinding transitions.Comment: 18 pages, 1 figure, to appear in JSTA

    Fully frustrated Josephson junction ladders with Mobius boundary conditions as topologically protected qubits

    Full text link
    We show how to realize a ``protected'' qubit by using a fully frustrated Josephson Junction ladder (JJL) with Mobius boundary conditions. Such a system has been recently studied within a twisted conformal field theory (CFT) approach (Mod. Phys. Lett. A 15 (2000) 1679; Nucl. Phys. B 641 (2002) 547) and shown to develop the phenomenon of flux fractionalization (Eur. Phys. J. B 49 (2006) 83). The relevance of a ``closed'' geometry has been fully exploited in relating the topological properties of the ground state of the system to the presence of half flux quanta and the emergence of a topological order has been predicted (JSTAT (2005) P03006). In this letter the stability and transformation properties of the ground states under adiabatic magnetic flux change are analyzed and the deep consequences on the realization of a solid state qubit, protected from decoherence, are presented.Comment: 21 pages, 2 figures, in print in Phys.
