Christian Hainzl (Tübingen, Germany): "Ground state properties of graphene in Hartree-Fock theory"
Monday 22 April 2013, 14:00 - 14:45
Amphi Hermite

 

In this talk I will discuss the Hartree-Fock approximation of graphene in infinite volume, with instantaneous Coulomb interactions.

First I will explain how to construct the translation-invariant ground state. Due to the exchange term, the resulting effective Fermi velocity is logarithmically divergent at zero momentum. Then I will discuss the existence of ground states in the presence of local defects and some properties of the associated nonlinear response.

Joint work with M. Lewin and C. Sparber.
