The measures are shown to be random cascades generated by an infinitely divisible distribution. This probability distribution is uniquely determined ... More
Dominant Superconducting Fluctuations in the One-Dimensional Extended Holstein-Extended Hubbard modelJan 23 2013The search for realistic one-dimensional (1D) models that exhibit dominant superconducting (SC) fluctuations effects has a long history. In these 1D systems, the effects of commensurate band fillings--strongest at half-filling--and electronic repulsions ... More
