Quantum phase transitions and decoupling of magnetic sublattices in the quasitwodimensional Ising magnet Co _{3}V _{2}O _{8} in a transverse magnetic field
We study the application of a magnetic field transverse to the easy axis, Ising direction in the quasitwodimensional kagome staircase magnet, Co _{3}V _{2}O _{8}, induces three quantum phase transitions at low temperatures, ultimately producing a novel high field polarized state, with two distinct sublattices. New timeofflight neutron scattering techniques, accompanied by large angular access, high magnetic field infrastructure allow the mapping of a sequence of ferromagnetic and incommensurate phases and their accompanying spin excitations. Also, at least one of the transitions to incommensurate phases at μ _{0}H _{c1}~6.25 T and μ _{0}H _{c2}~7 T is discontinuous, while the finalmore »Cited by 3 
Decoupling in the onedimensional frustrated quantum [ital XY] model and Josephsonjunction ladders: Ising critical behavior
A generalization of the onedimensional frustrated quantum [ital XY] model is considered in which the interchain and intrachain coupling constants of the two infinite [ital XY] (planar rotor) chains have different strengths. The model can describe the superconductor to insulator transition due to charging effects in a ladder of Josephson junctions in a magnetic field with half a flux quantum per plaquette. From a fluctuationeffective action, this transition is expected to be in the universality class of the twodimensional classical [ital XY]Ising model. The critical behavior is studied using a Monte Carlo transfer matrix applied to the pathintegral representation ofmore » 
Mott transitions and phases in quantum bosonic solids and bosonic superfluids
We review the nature of superfluid ground states and the universality of their properties with emphasis to the Bose Einstein condensate (BEC) systems in atomic physics. We then study the superfluid Mott transition in such systems. We find that there could be two types of Mott transitions and phases. One of them was described long ago and corresponds to the suppression of Josephson tunneling within superfluids sitting at each well. On the other hand, the conditions of optical lattice BEC experiments are such that either the coherence length is longer than the interwell separation, or there is too small amore »
