Tuning the universality class of quantum spin chains

In the introductory solid state physics courses, lattice vibrations in a crystal are typically introduced by considering first a hypothetical one-dimensional chain of atoms, which can be solved fully making it easier to grasp the idea of phonons (quanta of lattice waves) without really worrying about the complexities of a real three-dimensional crystal. The ditto … Continue reading
