  • Schubel, Mark D. (2018-04-13)
    This thesis develops a framework for discretizing field theories that is independent of the chosen coordinates of the underlying geometry. This independence enables the framework to be more easily utilized in a variety of ...

  • Leong, Zhidong (2018-07-05)
    Inspired by recent photoemission measurements, we demonstrate that the normal state of cuprate superconductors can be described by a power-law liquid, a state of matter with a power-law self-energy $\Sigma^{\pr\pr}\sim(\ ...

  • Zhou, Tianci (2018-07-06)
    Quantum quench is a non-equilibrium process where the Hamiltonian is suddenly changed during the quantum evolution. The change can be made by spatially local perturbations (local quench) or globally switching to a completely ...

  • Lao, Yuyang (2018-05-14)
    Artificial spin ice is a two-dimensional array of nanomagnets fabricated to study geometric frustration, a phenomenon that arises when competing interactions cannot be simultaneously satisfied within the system. While the ...
