    We have analyzed the quasiparticle dispersion and ARPES-spectral density for Sr2CuO2Cl2 and Ca2CuO2Cl2 antiferromagnetic insulators along basic symmetric directions of the Brillouin zone (BZ) in a framework of an extended tight binding method (ETBM) with explicit account for intracell strong electron correlations. The quasiparticle dispersion is in a good agreement with ARPES- data. At the top of valence band we found a narrow impurity-like virtual level with the spectral weight proportional to the concentration of spin fluctuations. A pseudogap between the virtual level and the top of the valence band has dispersion similar to 'remnant Fermi surface' in Ca2CuO2Cl2 and to a pseudogap in the underdoped Bi2212 samples. A calculated parity of the polarized ARPES-spectra in (0,0),(pi/2,pi/2),(pi,0) - points in the AFM- phase is even with regard to relative magnitudes of the partial contributions by different orbitals to the total ARPES- spectral density. Conditions of an observability for the different partial contributions in the polarized ARPES- experiments are determined also.Comment: 15 pdf-pages with 10 figures and tabl

    Neutrino dispersion in external magnetic fields

    Full text link
    We calculate the neutrino self-energy operator Sigma (p) in the presence of a magnetic field B. In particular, we consider the weak-field limit e B << m_\ell^2, where m_\ell is the charged-lepton mass corresponding to the neutrino flavor \nu_\ell, and we consider a "moderate field" m_\ell^2 << e B << m_W^2. Our results differ substantially from the previous literature. For a moderate field, we show that it is crucial to include the contributions from all Landau levels of the intermediate charged lepton, not just the ground-state. For the conditions of the early universe where the background medium consists of a charge-symmetric plasma, the pure B-field contribution to the neutrino dispersion relation is proportional to (e B)^2 and thus comparable to the contribution of the magnetized plasma.Comment: 9 pages, 1 figure, revtex.
