Cold atom simulations of Quantum Field Theories
  KTH/Nordita/SU seminar in Theoretical Physics [before December 2013]

Wednesday 27 October 2010
from 11:00 to 12:00
at FA32
Speaker : Jiannis Pachos (Leeds)
Abstract : We will present how Dirac fermions self-interacting or coupled to dynamic scalar fields can emerge in the low energy sector of designed bosonic and fermionic cold atom systems. We will illustrate this with two examples defined in two spacetime dimensions. The first one is the self-interacting Thirring model. The second one is a model of Dirac fermions coupled to a dynamic scalar field that gives rise to the Gross-Neveu model. The proposed cold atom experiments can be used to probe spectral or correlation properties of interacting quantum field theories thereby presenting an alternative to lattice gauge theory simulations.
