"Kink crystals and chiral spirals in the Gross-Neveu phase diagram"

Presented by Gerald Dunne, University of Connecticut (Storrs)

Thursday, December 17, 2009, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The Gross-Neveu models are 1+1 dimensional models of chiral symmetry breaking, for which the temperature/chemical potential phase diagram has recently been found analytically. There are crystalline condensate phases, with their structure being very different for the Gross-Neveu models with discrete and continuous chiral symmetry. I also discuss the relation between the Ginzburg-Landau expansion and certain integrable models.
