The three-dimensional periodic Anderson model is studied with the quantum Monte Carlo method. We find that the crossover to the Kondo singlet regime is remarkably sharp at low temperatures, and that the behavior of magnetic correlations is consistently reflected in both the thermodynamics and the density of states. The abruptness of the transition suggests that energy changes associated with the screening of local moments by conduction electrons might be sufficient to drive large volume changes in systems where applied pressure tunes the ratio of interband hybridization to correlation energy.

Heating up of Superconductors
January 27, 2017

This collection marks the 30th anniversary of the discovery of high-temperature superconductors. The papers selected highlight some of the advances that have been made to date, both in understanding why these compounds behave in the way they do, and in utilizing them in applications. The papers included in the collection have been made free to read.

APS and CERN Sign Open Access Agreement for SCOAP3

APS and CERN, the host organization of SCOAP3 (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics), have signed an agreement to make the high-energy physics (HEP) articles published in three leading APS journals open access beginning January 1, 2018. This agreement acts to support the publishing of open access content for wider benefit of the HEP community.
