# Dynamical structure factor of the SU(3) Heisenberg chain: Variational Monte Carlo approach

@article{Vrs2021DynamicalSF, title={Dynamical structure factor of the SU(3) Heisenberg chain: Variational Monte Carlo approach}, author={D{\'a}niel V{\"o}r{\"o}s and K. Penc}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2021} }

We compute the dynamical spin structure factor S(k, ω) of the SU(3) Heisenberg chain variationally using a truncated Hilbert space spanned by the Gutzwiller projected particle-hole excitations of the Fermi sea, introduced in [B. Dalla Piazza et al., Nature Physics 11, 62 (2015)], with a modified importance sampling. We check the reliability of the method by comparing the S(k, ω) to exact diagonalization results for 18 sites and to the two-soliton continuum of the Bethe Ansatz for 72 sites. We… Expand

Abstract We use non-abelian bosonization to predict critical exponents for quantum chains of arbitrary spin and arbitrary symmetry SU( n ). Passing to the large representation limit gives non-linear… Expand

Complementary colors of colorons: The elementary excitations of the SU(3) Haldane-Shastry model

- Physics, Mathematics

We propose two possible trial wave functions for the elementary excitations of the SU(3) Haldane-Shastry model, but then argue on very general grounds that only one or the other can be a valid… Expand
