Unconventional Quantum Critical Points

Preprint English OPEN
Xu, Cenke; (2012)

In this paper we review the theory of unconventional quantum critical points that are beyond the Landau's paradigm. Three types of unconventional quantum critical points will be discussed: (1). The transition between topological order and semiclassical spin ordered phas... View more
