    Degenerate approach to the mean field Bose- Hubbard Hamiltonian

    Full text link
    A degenerate variant of mean field perturbation theory for the on-site Bose-Hubbard Hamiltonian is presented. We split the perturbation into two terms and perform exact diagonalization in the two-dimensional subspace corresponding to the degenerate states. The final relations for the second order ground state energy and first order wave function do not contain singularities at integer values of the chemical potentials. The resulting equation for the phase boundary between superfluid and Mott states coincides with the prediction based on the conventional mean field perturbation approach.Comment: 4 pages, 1 figur

    Quantum criticality features in the Co doped MnSi

    Full text link
    The mysterious universal line revealing an independence of spin fluctuation contributions to the heat capacity of (Mn,Co)Si on impurity contents and its nature is discovered. This situation probably declares an invariance of the spin subsystem energy that may provide by the response of itinerant electron system on the volume change at doping.Comment: 3 pages, 8 figure

    Vortex state in Bose-Fermi mixture with attraction between bosons and fermions

    Full text link
    Vortex states in the mixture of ultracold atomic clouds of bosons and fermions are investigated using the effective Hamiltonian for the Bose subsystem. A stability of the Bose system in the case of attractive interaction between components is studied in the framework of variational Bose wave function and Thomas-Fermi approximation. It is shown that the critical number of bosons increases in the presence of the vortex.Comment: 7 pages, 8 figure

    Quantum phase transitions and the degree of nonidentity in the system with two different species of vector bosons

    Full text link
    We address the system with two species of vector bosons in an optical lattice. In addition to the the standard parameters characterizing such a system, we are dealing here with the "degree of atomic nonidentity", manifesting itself in the difference of tunneling amplitudes and on-site Coulomb interactions. We obtain a cascade of quantum phase transitions occurring with the increase in the degree of atomic nonidentity. In particular, we show that the phase diagram for strongly distinct atoms is qualitatively different from that for (nearly) identical atoms considered earlier. The resulting phase diagrams evolve from the images similar to the "J. Mir\'o-like paintings" to "K. Malewicz-like" ones.Comment: 11 pages, 9 figure
