Charge density waves

  • T. M. Rice


Several topics of current interest in the theory of charge density waves are discussed. Impurities destroy long-range order in the incommensurate phase. The validity of the saddle-point model as a description of the 2H-polytypes is reviewed.

Волны плотности заряда


Обсуждаются некоторые проблемы в теории волн плотности заряда. Примеси уничтожают дальний порядок в несоразмерной фазе. Анализируется справедливость модели седловой точки для описания «политинов» 2H.


Si discutono diversi argomenti di interesse corrente nella teoria delle onde di densità di carica. Le impurità distruggono l’ordine a grande distanza nella fase incommensurata. Si riesamina la validità del modello a punto di sella per la descrizione dei politipi 2H.
