Extra nodes and the phase shift of the scattering wave function for a nonlocal potential
This paper examines the presence of extra nodes in the scattering wave function for a nonlocal potential. Extra nodes are known to result from the nonlocality of an effective potential which incorporates the Pauli principle. It is shown that an extra node is directly linked to the existence of a continuum bound state or a spurious state in the scattering spectrum. Thus the presence of extra nodes occurs in conjunction with zeros of the Fredholm determinants D/sup plusorminus/(k) and D (k) associated with the integral equations for the physical and regular scattering solutions, respectively. The behavior of the nodes duemore » 
Quantum correlations in topological quantum phase transitions
We study the quantum correlations in a twodimensional system that possesses a topological quantum phase transition. The quantumness of twobody correlations is measured by quantum discord. We calculate both the correlation of two local spins and that between an arbitrary spin and the rest of the lattice. It is notable that local spins are classically correlated, while the quantum correlation is hidden in the global lattice. This is different from other systems which are not topologically ordered. Moreover, the mutual information and global quantum discord show critical behavior in the topological quantum phase transition. 
Quantum phase transitions between a class of symmetry protected topological states
The subject of this paper is the phase transition between symmetry protected topological states (SPTs). We consider spatial dimension d and symmetry group G so that the cohomology group, H ^{d+1}(G,U(1)), contains at least one Z _{2n} or Z factor. We show that the phase transition between the trivial SPT and the root states that generate the Z _{2n} or Z groups can be induced on the boundary of a (d+1)dimensional G x Z ^{T} _{2}symmetric SPT by a Z ^{T} _{2} symmetry breaking field. Moreover we show these boundary phase transitions can be “transplanted” to d dimensions and realizedmore »Cited by 8
