Theory Seminar: Quantum phase transitions between orthogonal and normal fermions in metals and semi-metals

Snir Gazit (Hebrew University)Orthogonal fermions present the simplest form of electronic fractionalization, where physical (gauge- neutral) electrons split into a local product of spinful fermions and Ising matter fields.
