  • Xu, Wenchao (2018-03-26)
    We use 40K atoms trapped in a cubic optical lattice to simulate the Fermi-Hubbard model. The work in this thesis focuses on investigating dynamics in the Fermi-Hubbard model and developing techniques for engineering ...

  • Hegg, Anthony C (2016-10-14)
    This is an in-depth study of two analytic nonperturbative renormalization group methods used to study nonrelativistic quartic interacting systems. The model studied is that of classical real scalar φ4 theory. A variety of ...

  • Ray, Ushnish (2015-04-22)
    The study of the disordered Bose-Hubbard model is key to understanding the interplay of disorder and interactions. Despite many studies with uniform diagonal disorder, few have inquired into experimental realizations with ...
