We derived a quasiparticle pseudo Hamiltonian of an infinitesimally
polarized electron gas
which fully takes into account the many-body effects of both charge and spin density
fluctuations. We calculated self-consistently Fermi liquid parameters like the effective
mass, the effective g-factor, spin susceptibility in two-dimensional systems and found
reasonable agreement with experiments. My works on electron gas [see especially PRB 38
10966 (1988); PRB 40 5432, (1990); PRB 49 7887 (1994); PRB 49 14188 (1994)] are
well recognized and distinguished scientists (including Nobel prize winners) cite these works.
In fact G. F. Giuliani and G. Vignale have written a book ["Quantum Theory of the
Electron Liquid" (Cambridge)] in which my work forms a major theme of the chapter
"The normal Fermi liquid" (Ch. 8).
I had included effects of electron-impurity interactions [PRB 44 13101 (1991)] and showed that
the magnetization instability (at filling factor 2 in the quantum Hall regime) predicted by Giuliani
and Quinnin [PRB 31 6228 (1985)] does occur; the experiment (measuring diagonal resistivity
in GaInAs-InP heterostructures) I proposed was carried out by K. von Klitzing et al. [Phys. Rev. B
47 4048 (1993)] and the instability was explicitly demonstrated. The prediction was also
verified by Mike Pepper et al. [PRL 79, 4449, (1997)] through activation transport studies.
Several Nobel prize winners (such as H. L. Stormer, D. C. Tsui, K. v. Klitzing, and
H. Kroemer) and Buckley award winners (such as J. K. Jain, A. H. MacDonald, and S. M. Girvin)
cite this work.
By using novel approaches, we (my student Sanjoy Datta and I) solved the
long-standing problem of analytically obtaining the Peierls instability condition in
the Holstein model [Phys. Rev. B 75, 035124 (2007) and Phys. Rev. B 71, 235118 (2005)]
and predicted the phase diagram away from half-filling.
We (my student Sanjoy Datta and
I) derived an effective d-dimensional Hamiltonian
for a system of hard-core-bosons coupled to optical phonons in a lattice. Away from half-filling,
we show that the presence of next-nearest-neighbor hopping in the effective Hamiltonian leads
to a striking superfluid-to-supersolid transition [Solid State Commun. 150 , 2040 (2010)].
