Title  Thermal Transport in Strongly Correlated RareEarth Intermetallic Compounds 
Author(s)  Pfau, Heike 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XXI, 118 p. 46 illus., 32 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis explores thermal transport in selected rareearthbased intermetallic compounds to answer questions of great current interest. It also sheds light on the interplay of Kondo physics and Fermi surface changes. By performing thermal conductivity and electrical resistivity measurements at temperatures as low as 25mK, the author demonstrates that the Wiedemann???Franz law, a cornerstone of metal physics, is violated at precisely the magneticfieldinduced quantum critical point of the heavyfermion metal YbRh2Si2. This firstever observation of a violation has dramatic consequences, as it implies a breakdown of the quasiparticle picture. Utilizing an innovative technique to measure lowtemperature thermal transport isothermally as a function of the magnetic field, the thesis interprets specific, partly newly discovered, highfield transitions in CeRu2Si2 and YbRh2Si2 as Lifshitz transitions related to a change in the Fermi surface. Lastly, by applying this new technique to thermal conductivity measurements of the skutterudite superconductor LaPt4Ge12, the thesis proves that the system is a conventional superconductor with a single energy gap. Thus, it refutes the widespread speculations about unconventional Cooper pairing in this material.

Title  Tensor Network States and Effective Particles for LowDimensional Quantum Spin Systems 
Author(s)  Vanderstraeten, Laurens 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIII, 219 p. 54 illus., 48 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis develops new techniques for simulating the lowenergy behaviour of quantum spin systems in one and two dimensions. Combining these developments, it????subsequently uses the formalism of tensor network states to derive an effective particle description for one and twodimensional spin systems that exhibit strong quantum correlations. These techniques arise from the combination of two themes in manyparticle physics: (i) the concept of quasiparticles as the effective lowenergy degrees of freedom in a condensedmatter system, and (ii) entanglement as the characteristic feature for describing quantum phases of matter. Whereas the former gave rise to the use of effective field theories for understanding manyparticle systems, the latter led to the development of tensor network states as a description of the entanglement distribution in quantum lowenergy states

Title  Theoretical Study on Correlation Effects in Topological Matter 
Author(s)  Isobe, Hiroki 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2017. 
Description  XII, 136 p. 46 illus., 41 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis elucidates electron correlation effects in topological matter whose electronic states hold nontrivial topological properties robust against small perturbations. In addition to a comprehensive introduction to topological matter, this thesis provides a new perspective on correlated topological matter. The book comprises three subjects, in which electron correlations in different forms are considered. The first focuses on Coulomb interactions for massless Dirac fermions. Using a perturbative approach, the author reveals emergent Lorentz invariance in a lowenergy limit and discusses how to probe the Lorentz invariance experimentally. The second subject aims to show a principle for synthesizing topological insulators with common, light elements. The interplay between the spin???orbit interaction and electron correlation is considered, and Hund's rule and electron filling are consequently found to play a key role for a strong spin???orbit interaction important for topological insulators. The last subject is classification of topological crystalline insulators in the presence of electron correlation. Unlike noninteracting topological insulators, such two and threedimensional correlated insulators with mirror symmetry are demonstrated to be characterized, respectively, by the Z4 and Z8 group by using the bosonization technique and a geometrical consideration

Title  Observation of Superconductivity in Epitaxially Grown Atomic Layers : In Situ Electrical Transport Measurements 
Author(s)  Ichinokura, Satoru 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2018. 
Description  XIX, 122 p. 50 illus., 42 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis presents first observations of superconductivity in one or twoatomicscale thin layer materials. The thesis begins with a historical overview of superconductivity and the electronic structure of twodimensional materials, and mentions that these key ingredients lead to the possibility of the twodimensional superconductor with high phasetransition temperature and critical magnetic field. Thereafter, the thesis moves its focus onto the implemented experiments, in which mainly two different materials thalliumdeposited silicon surfaces and metalintercalated bilayer graphenes, are used. The study of the first material is the first experimental demonstration of both a gigantic Rashba effect and superconductivity in the materials supposed to be superconductors without spatial inversion symmetry. The study of the latter material is relevant to superconductivity in a bilayer graphene, which was a big experimental challenge for a decade, and has been first achieved by the author. The description of the generic and innovative measurement technique, highly effective in probing electric resistivity of ultrathin materials unstable in an ambient environment, makes this thesis a valuable source for researchers not only in surface physics but also in nanomaterials science and other condensedmatter physics

Title  Ordering Phenomena in RareEarth Nickelate Heterostructures 
Author(s)  Hepting, Matthias 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVI, 147 p. 63 illus., 56 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis presents an experimental study of ordering phenomena in rareearth nickelatebased heterostructures by means of inelastic Raman light scattering and elastic resonant xray scattering (RXS). Further, it demonstrates that the amplitude ratio of magnetic moments at neighboring nickel sites can be accurately determined by RXS in combination with a correlated double cluster model, and controlled experimentally through structural pinning of the oxygen positions in the crystal lattice. The two key outcomes of the thesis are: (a) demonstratingfull control over the charge/bond and spin order parameters in specifically designed praseodymium nickelate heterostructures and observation of a novel spin density wave phase in absence of the charge/bond order parameter, which confirms theoretical predictions of a spin density wave phase driven by spatial confinement of the conduction electrons; and (b) assessing the thicknessinduced crossover between collinear and noncollinear spin structures in neodymium nickelate slabs, which is correctly predicted by drawing on density functional theory.

Title  Perturbative and Nonperturbative Approaches to String SigmaModels in AdS/CFT 
Author(s)  Vescovi, Edoardo 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIII, 239 p. 32 illus., 18 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis introduces readers to the type II superstring theories in the AdS5??S5 and AdS4??CP3 backgrounds. Each chapter exemplifies a different computational approach to measuring observables (conformal dimensions of singletrace operators and expectation values of Wilson loop operators) relevant for two supersymmetric theories: the N=4 super YangMills theory and the N=6 ChernSimonsmatter (ABJM) theory.?? Perturbative techniques have traditionally been used to make quantitative predictions in quantum field theories, but they are only reliable as long as the interaction strengths are weak. The antide Sitter/conformal field theory (AdS/CFT) correspondence realizes physicists??? dream of studying strongly coupled quantum field theories with ???enhanced??? symmetries, using the methods provided by string theory.?? The first part of the thesis sets up the semiclassical quantization of worldsheet sigmamodel actions around string solutions of least area in AdS space. This machinery is used to capture quantum corrections at large coupling to nexttoleading and nexttonexttoleading order by solving the determinants of partial differential operators and by computing Feynman diagrams, respectively. In turn, the second part presents an innovative approach based on Monte Carlo simulations to finite coupling for a latticediscretized model of the AdS5??S5 superstring action.?? The thesis focuses on fundamental aspects, as well as on applications previously published by the author, and offers a valuable reference work for anyone interested in the most recent developments in this field

Title  Manybody Approaches at Different Scales : A Tribute to Norman H. March on the Occasion of his 90th Birthday 
Author(s)  Angilella, G.G.N;Amovilli, C 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XVIII, 385 p. 90 illus., 72 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a collection of invited research and review contributions on recent advances in (mainly) theoretical condensed matter physics, theoretical chemistry, and theoretical physics. The volume celebrates the 90th birthday of N.H. March (Emeritus Professor, Oxford University, UK), a prominent figure in all of these fields. Given the broad range of interests in the research activity of Professor March, who collaborated with a number of eminent scientists in physics and chemistry, the volume embraces quite diverse topics in physics and chemistry, at various dimensions and energy scales. One thread connecting all these topics is correlation in aggregated states of matter, ranging from nuclear physics to molecules, clusters, disordered condensed phases such as the liquid state, and solid state physics, and the various phase transitions, both structural and electronic, occurring therein. A final chapter leaps to an even larger scale of matter aggregation, namely the universe and gravitation. A further no less important common thread is methodological, with the application of theoretical physics and chemistry, particularly density functional theory and statistical field theory, to both nuclear and condensed matter
