Magnetic and Superfluid Transitions in the OneDimensional Spin1 Boson Hubbard Model
Abstract
Recent progress in experiments on trapped ultracold atoms has made it possible to study the interplay between magnetism and superfluidinsulator transitions in the boson Hubbard model. We report on quantum Monte Carlo simulations of the spin1 boson Hubbard model in the ground state. For antiferromagnetic interactions favoring singlets, we present exact numerical evidence that the superfluidinsulator transition is first (second) order for even (odd) Mott lobes. Inside even lobes, we search for nematictosinglet first order transitions. In the ferromagnetic case where transitions are all continuous, we map the phase diagram and show the superfluid to be ferromagnetic. We compare the quantum Monte Carlo phase diagram with a third order perturbation calculation.
