Criticality in Quantum Dissipative Systems
2012 (English)Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
This thesis consists of five scientific papers in the field of condensed matter physics. In all papers we employ large scale Monte Carlo simulations to investigate quantum critical behavior in systems coupled to an environment. Special attention is paid to possible anisotropies between spatial fluctuations and fluctuations in imaginary time. Implications of the results to the loop current theory of cuprates are discussed.
