Many-body problem in one-dimension

Description

This work attempts to give a qualitative feeling for the more important physical ideas involved with the study of many-body systems in one dimension, and considers a particular strong-coupling model. This model provides an excellent description of the chains of mercury ions in Hg/sub 3-delta/AsF/sub 6/; some of the predictions of the theory can be checked by x-ray and neutron diffraction. Much of the physics of nearly one-dimensional materials is concerned with understanding the possible types of phase transition that may take place, and establishing the conditions in which one or another will be predominant. The most significant feature of ... continued below

Description

This work attempts to give a qualitative feeling for the more important physical ideas involved with the study of many-body systems in one dimension, and considers a particular strong-coupling model. This model provides an excellent description of the chains of mercury ions in Hg/sub 3-delta/AsF/sub 6/; some of the predictions of the theory can be checked by x-ray and neutron diffraction. Much of the physics of nearly one-dimensional materials is concerned with understanding the possible types of phase transition that may take place, and establishing the conditions in which one or another will be predominant. The most significant feature of purely one-dimensional systems is the dominant effect of fluctuations. The paper is organized as follows: introduction; qualitative aspects of one-dimensional systems (general survey, mathematical model, qualitative discussion of strong coupling - strong attractive U, strong repulsive U, large V); strong coupling between parallel spins (independent spin systems, coupling between opposite spins); mercury chains; electrons with arbitrary coupling; boson representations of operators; and classical Coulomb gas.
