Quotients of one-sided trianglated categories by rigid subcategories as module categoriesFeb 08 2013We prove that some subquotient categories of one-sided triangulated categories are abelian. This unifies a result by Iyama-Yoshino in the case of triangulated categories and a result by Demonet-Liu in the case of exact categories.

Generalized effective-potential Landau theory for the two-dimensional extended Bose-Hubbard modelOct 24 2018We analytically study the quantum phase diagrams of ultracold dipolar Bose gases in an optical square lattice at zero temperature by using the generalized effective-potential Landau theory (GEPLT). For a weak nearest-neighbor repulsion, our analytical ... More
