We study frustration-free Hamiltonians of fractional quantum Hall (FQH) states from the point of view of the matrix product state (MPS) representation of their ground and excited states. There is a wealth of solvable models relating to FQH physics, which, however, is mostly derived and analyzed from the vantage point of first-quantized “analytic cl...

Multiferroics (MFs) are materials with two or more ferroic orders, like spontaneous ferroelectric and ferromagnetic polarizations. Such materials can exhibit a magnetoelectric effect whereby magnetic and ferroelectric polarizations couple linearly, reminiscent of, but not identical to the electromagnetic E·B axion coupling. Here we point out a poss...

Multiferroics (MFs) are materials with two or more ferroic orders, like spontaneous ferroelectric and ferromagnetic polarizations. Such materials can exhibit a magnetoelectric effect whereby magnetic and ferroelectric polarizations couple linearly, reminiscent of, but not identical to the electromagnetic $\boldsymbol{E}\cdot \boldsymbol{B}$ axion c...

Using an algebra of second-quantized operators, we develop local two-body parent Hamiltonians for all unprojected Jain states at filling factor n/(2np+1), with integer n and (half-)integer p. We rigorously establish that these states are uniquely stabilized and that zero mode counting reproduces mode counting in the associated edge conformal field...

We have investigated the effects of nonhermiticity on superconducting states. We have shown the definition of the time-ordered product in the Green's function requires the introduction of a bi-orthogonal basis in nonhermitian systems. This modification allows a classification scheme of nonhermitian superconductors with new classes of states not pre...

The concept of the time‐independent correlators for the even‐ and odd‐frequency pairing states that can be defined for both bosonic and fermionic quasiparticles is proposed. These correlators explicitly capture the existence of two distinct classes of pairing states and provide a direct probe of the hidden Berezinskii order. This concept is illustr...

Using an algebra of second quantized operators, we develop local two-body parent Hamiltonians for all unprojected Jain states at filling factor $n/(2n{\sf p}+1)$, with integer $n$, and (half-)integer ${\sf p}$. We rigorously establish that these states are uniquely stabilized and that zero mode counting reproduces mode counting in the associated ed...

We develop recursion relations, in particle number, for all (unprojected) Jain composite fermion (CF) wave functions. These recursions generalize a similar recursion originally written down by Read for Laughlin states, in mixed first-second quantized notation. In contrast, our approach is purely second-quantized, giving rise to an algebraic, “pure...

A formalism is developed for the rigorous study of solvable fractional quantum Hall parent Hamiltonians with Landau level mixing. The idea of organization through "generalized Pauli principles" is expanded to allow for root level entanglement, giving rise to "entangled Pauli principles". Through the latter, aspects of the effective field theory des...

We analyze general zero mode properties of the parent Hamiltonian of the unprojected Jain-2/5 state. We characterize the zero mode condition associated to this Hamiltonian via projection onto a four-dimensional two-particle subspace for given pair angular momentum, for the disk and similarly for the spherical geometry. Earlier numerical claims in t...

Bismuth iron oxide (BFO) is a well known Mott insulator with type-II multiferroic properties. It is an canted antiferromagnetic material with ferro-electricity in the system. Due to ferro-electricity, it also has topological excitations like domain walls and vortices. Two recent studies has shown an enhanced conductivity at the vortex core and doma...

In this work, the exact solutions for combined KdV-mKdV generalized equation
as a linear superposition of Jacobi elliptic functions, $c_n(\xi,m)$,
$d_n(\xi,m)$. When $m$ is set to one, the solution matches with well-known
hyperbolic solutions of generalized combined KdV-mKdV equation. Similar
solution is also derived for the case for time dependent...

The effects of competing orders, such as superconductivity and
ferromagnetism, on a Fermi liquid are well established. A comprehensive
understanding of such a competition in a metal whose Fermi surface has a
non-trivial topology is yet to be achieved. Here, we address this question in a
prototypical system: the 2D Rashba semimetal. We show that dom...

Study of higher Landau levels, non-abelian fractional quantum Hall states, starting from microscopic frustration free Hamiltonian. We are developing a framework to study, all the degeneracy, topological shift, edge state excitations in the regime of Hall fluids, where a straight-forward application of conformal symmetry does not exist. We are further modifying our methodology to study phase transition between different filling fractions starting from a microscopic theory.
