Hi! My name is Victor Alexandrov, I'm Graduate student at Rutgers University, Department of Physics and Astronomy.
I'm doing exclusively theoretical work on the crossover between condensed matter physics
and High energy physics. You are welcome use my guest book below. Thank you !
My first paper is an editor's choice in PRB (Physical Review B).
http://prb.aps.org... It is an attempt to bring together
toy models studied by a very compitent theories from High energy Background and Condensed matter community.
We ask what re spin properties in those toy models (Holographic models).
My second paper took me in a different direction and was inspired
by a 40 years old puzzle of residual resistivity of SmB6 (Samarium Hexaborite).
In the paper we refine the criteria that is needed to have conducting surface states,
which is now believed to be caused by topology. Such materials are referred as topological insulators.
This paper is accepted for publication to PRL (Physical Review Letters).
As some people like to taste the journals by its impact factors, where Nature Physics has ~20,
PRL and PRB have 7.4 and 3.7 correspondingly.
