Pseudospin symmetry and new collective modes of the Hubbard model

View publication

Abstract

The Hubbard model possesses a SU(2) pseudospin symmetry, which contains the U(1) phase symmetry as a subgroup. The existence of such symmetry leads to interesting experimental consequences if the U(1) phase symmetry is spontaneously broken, i.e., if the ground state is superconducting. In this case, there must exist a pair of massive collective modes which together with the usual Goldstone mode form a triplet representation of the psuedospin group. These collective modes are collisionless and couple directly to external charge disturbances with wave number.
