The Case of the Intertwined Orders (Poster)

Eduardo Fradkin

I will argue that there is compelling evidence, both experimental and theoretical, that the observed orders in strongly correlated systems are intertwined rather than competing, i.e. appear in comparable strength without need of fine-tuning to a complex multicritical point. An example of intertwined orders is the scenario based on the of the pair-density-wave state from which other orders appear from different quantum and/or thermal melting phase transitions.
