We provide a review on the physics associated with phase transitions in which continuous scale invariance is broken into discrete scale invariance. The rich features of this transition characterized by the abrupt formation of a geometric ladder of eigenstates, low energy universality without fixed points, scale anomalies and Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-...

Momentum transport is anomalous in chiral $p+ip$ superfluids and superconductors in the presence of textures and superflow. Using the gradient expansion of the semi-classical approximation, we show how gauge and Galilean symmetries induce an emergent curved spacetime with torsion and curvature for the quasirelativistic low-energy Majorana-Weyl quas...

We calculate the universal ratios $R_{2k}$ of renormalized coupling constants $g_{2k}$ entering the critical equation of state for the generalized Heisenberg (three-dimensional $n$-vector) model. Renormalization group (RG) expansions of $R_8$ and $R_{10}$ for arbitrary $n$ are found in the four-loop and three-loop approximations respectively. Unive...

We demonstrate an all-optical method for controlling the transverse motion of ionization injected electron beam, by utilizing the transversely asymmetrical wakefield via adjusting the shape of the laser focal spot. When the laser spot shape is changed from the circular to the obliquely elliptic in experiment, the electron beam shape becomes from el...

Recent calculations of nuclear structure corrections to the Lamb shift in light muonic atoms are based on an expansion in a parameter eta, where only terms up to second order are retained. The parameter eta can be shown to be proportional to the square root of the muon/proton mass ratio, so that it is small and the expansion is expected to converge...

We study the ground state of one-dimensional channel with strong attractive electron-electron interaction at low temperatures. In spite of the fact that at low temperatures the ground state of one-dimensional attracting electrons is a state with a macroscopically large number of cooperons, the resulting superconducting phase has a number of signifi...

It has always been conventionally understood that, in the dilute limit, the Casimir energy of interaction between bodies or the Casimir self-energy of a dielectric body could be identified with the sum of the van der Waals or Casimir-Polder energies of the constituents of the bodies. Recently, this proposition for self-energies has been challenged ...

The construction and classification of symmetry protected topological (SPT) phases in interacting bosonic and fermionic systems have been intensively studied in the past few years. Very recently, a complete classification and construction of space group SPT phases were also proposed for interacting bosonic systems. In this paper, we attempt to gene...
