In this paper on p42, it is explained that when starting with a bare action that contains a standard kinetic term, this kinetic term attains a correction in the course of the RG flow which can be ...
The s-d interaction Hamiltonian is as fellows $H_I=Js.S$, J is the coupling strength. We focus on the antiferromagnetic case, where $J>0$. According Anderson's poor man's scaling, the ...
I have often read that renormalizability and scale invariance are somehow related. For example in this tutorial on page 12 in the first sentence of point (7), self similarity (= scale invariance ?) is ...
What is it about conformal transformations that make them so widely applicable in physics? These preserve angles, in other words directions (locally), and I can understand that might be useful. Also, ...
