  • Magnetic properties of isostructural substitutional solid solutions Ce/sub x/La/sub 1-x/Cu/sub 2/Si/sub 2/ (0 or approx. =0.8, the value of T/sub SG/ decreases, and near xroughly-equal1 Ce/sub x/La/sub 1-x/Cu/sub 2/Si/sub 2/ compounds become superconducting. These changes in magnetic properties of Ce/sub x/La/sub 1-x/Cu/sub 2/Si/sub 2/ take place during the transition from a Kondo impurity (x< or =1) to a Kondo lattice (xroughly-equal1) when there appears a narrow resonance near the Fermi energy for x..-->..1, which causes a decrease of the effective magnetic moment of Ce ions (and a decrease of T/sub SG/ in the region x> or approx. =0.8) and appearancemore » of superconductivity of heavy fermions in CeCu/sub 2/Si/sub 2/.« less
  • The behaviour of a spin-1/2 Kondo impurity coupled to a superconducting metal by the s-d exchange interaction is analyzed. The impurity spin correlation function is expressed by the spin relaxation spectrum which was calculated within the Tomonaga approximation, thereby taking care of the infrared singularities. The static spin correlation function chi/sub 0/ is self-consistently obtained from the relaxation spectrum. When the characteristic Kondo temperature is of the order of or larger than the superconducting gap, chi/sub 0/ is finite at zero temperature, showing that the ground state is a nonmagnetic complex with total spin 0. This result is related tomore » previous calculations on bulk properties of the superconductor, such as the reduction of the phase transition temperature and of the specific heat jump due to magnetic impurities.The impurity relaxation rate is discussed in connection with retardation effects and analogies to the relaxation of a spin in a normal metal with an applied magnetic field are pointed out. 21 refs.« less
  • We develop a unified theoretical framework for the anisotropic Kondo model and the boundary sine-Gordon model. They are both boundary integrable quantum field theories with a quantum-group spin at the boundary which takes values, respectively, in standard or cyclic representations of the quantum group SU(2){sub q}. This unification is powerful, and allows us to find new results for both models. For the anisotropic Kondo problem, we find exact expressions (in the presence of a magnetic field) for all the coefficients in the Anderson-Yuval perturbative expansion. Our expressions hold initially in the very anisotropic regime, but we show how to continuemore » them beyond the Toulouse point all the way to the isotropic point using an analog of dimensional regularization. The analytic structure is transparent, involving only simple poles which we determine exactly, together with their residues. For the boundary sine-Gordon model, which describes an impurity in a Luttinger liquid, we find the non-equilibrium conductance for all values of the Luttinger coupling. This is an intricate computation because the voltage operator and the boundary scattering do not commute with each other.« less
