On the Interpolation of Analytic MapsJul 02 2013Let (E_0,E_1) and (H_0,H_1) be a pair of Banach spaces with dense and continuous embeddings E_1 into E_0, H_1 into H_0. For $\theta \in [0,1]$ denote by $B_\theta(0,R)$ the ball of radius R centered at zero in the interpolation spaces E_\theta. Assume ... More

Zero energy Majorana modes in spin ladders and a possible realization of the Kitaev modelMay 29 2011Aug 04 2011We show that in double-chain Mott insulators (ladders), disordered alternating ionic potentials may locally destroy coherence of magnetic excitations and lead to the appearance of spontaneously dimerized islands inside the Haldane spin-liquid phase. We ... More
