Ground state properties of graphene in Hartree-Fock theory
Tuesday 31 July 2012, 11:00-11:45
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
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 C. Hainzl and C. Sparber.
