Magnetic and superconducting quantum critical behavior of itinerant electronic systems
Keywords and Phrases
Quantum phase transitions; Itinerant electrons
"Quantum phase transitions occur at zero temperature as a function of some non-thermal parameter, e.g., pressure or chemical composition. In addition to being of fundamental interest, quantum phase transitions are important because they are believed to underlie a number of interesting low temperature phenomena. Quantum phase transitions differ from the classical phase transitions in many important aspects, two of them being (i) the mode-coupling effects and (ii) the behavior in the presence of disorder. We devote two projects of this dissertation to each of the two."--Abstract, page iv.
