Absence of DisorderDriven MetalInsulator Transitions in Simple Holographic Models
Grozdanov, Sašo; Lucas, Andrew James; Sachdev, Subir; Schalm, Koenraad (American Physical Society (APS), 2015)We study electrical transport in a strongly coupled strange metal in two spatial dimensions at finite temperature and charge density, holographically dual to the EinsteinMaxwell theory in an asymptotically fourdimensional ... 
Algebraic Charge Liquids
Kaul, Ribhu; Kim, Yong; Sachdev, Subir; Senthil, T. (Nature Publishing Group, 2008)High temperature superconductivity emerges in the cuprate compounds upon changing the electron density of an insulator in which the electron spins are antiferromagnetically ordered. A key characteristic of the superconductor ... 
Angular Fluctuations of a Multicomponent Order Describe the Pseudogap of \(YBa_2Cu_3O_{6+x}\)
Hayward, Lauren; Hawthorn, David G.; Melko, Roger G.; Sachdev, Subir (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2014)The holedoped cuprate hightemperature superconductors enter the pseudogap regime as their superconducting critical temperature, \(T_c\), falls with decreasing hole density. Recent xray scattering experiments in ... 
Antiferromagnetism in Metals: From the Cuprate Superconductors to the Heavy Fermion Materials
Sachdev, Subir; Metlitski, Max A.; Punk, Matthias (IOP Publishing, 2012)The critical theory of the onset of antiferromagnetism in metals, with concomitant Fermi surface reconstruction, has recently been shown to be strongly coupled in two spatial dimensions. The onset of unconventional ...

Hamidian, M. H.; Edkins, S. D.; Kim, Chung Koo; Davis, J. C.; Mackenzie, A. P.; Eisaki, H.; Uchida, S.; Lawler, M. J.; Kim, E.A.; Sachdev, Subir; Fujita, K. (Nature Publishing Group, 2015)Research on hightemperature superconducting cuprates is at present focused on identifying the relationship between the classic ‘pseudogap’ phenomenon and the more recently investigated density wave state. This state is ... 
Auxiliaryboson and DMFT studies of bond ordering instabilities of tJV models on the square lattice
Allais, Andrea; Bauer, Johannes; Sachdev, Subir (Springer Science + Business Media, 2014)We examine the influence of strong onsite Coulomb interactions on instabilities of the metallic state on the square lattice to general forms of bond order. The Mott correlations are accounted for by the auxiliaryboson ... 
Black Hole Determinants and Quasinormal Modes
Denef, Frederik; Hartnoll, Sean; Sachdev, Subir (Institute of Physics, 2010)We derive an expression for functional determinants in thermal spacetimes as a product over the corresponding quasinormal modes. As simple applications we give efficient computations of scalar determinants in thermal AdS, ...

Sachdev, Subir; La Placa, Rolando Luis (American Physical Society (APS), 2013)We present an unrestricted HartreeFock computation of chargeordering instabilities of twodimensional metals with antiferromagnetic exchange interactions, allowing for arbitrary ordering wave vectors and internal wave ... 
Breakdown of Fermi Liquid Behavior at the (π,π)=2k\(_F\) SpinDensity Wave QuantumCritical Point: the Case of ElectronDoped Cuprates
Bergeron, Dominic; Chowdhury, Debanjan; Punk, Matthias; Sachdev, Subir; Tremblay, A.M. S. (American Physical Society, 2012)Many correlated materials display a quantumcritical point between a paramagnetic and a spindensity wave (SDW) state. The SDW wave vector connects points, socalled hot spots, on opposite sides of the Fermi surface. The ...
