Gapless Bosonic Excitation without symmetry breaking: Novel Algebraic Spin liquid with soft GravitonsSep 22 2006A novel quantum ground state of matter is realized in a bosonic model on three dimensional fcc lattice with emergent low energy excitations. The novel phase obtained is a stable gapless boson liquid phase, with algebraic boson density correlations. The ... More

Sobolev orthogonal polynomials defined via gradient on the unit ballDec 18 2006An explicit family of polynomials on the unit ball $B^d$ of $\RR^d$ is constructed, so that it is an orthonormal family with respect to the inner product $$ < f,g > = \rho \int_{B^d}\nabla f(x)\cdot \nabla g(x) dx + \CL (fg), $$ where $\rho >0$, $\nabla$ ...
