Superconductivity and chiral symmetry breaking with fermion clusters


Journal Article

Cluster variables have recently revolutionized numerical work in certain models involving fermionic variables. This novel representation of fermionic partition functions is continuing to find new applications. After describing results from a study of a two dimensional Hubbard type model that confirm a superconducting transition in the Kosterlitz-Thouless universality class, we show how a cluster type algorithm can be devised to study the chiral limit of strongly coupled lattice gauge theories with staggered fermions.
