dc.description.abstractThis thesis is a collection of research work in quantum many-body physics that I have done during the past few years. The topics include: 1. a theory of anomalous magnetotransport from mass anisotropy of the fermions on a Fermi surface; 2. attempts to understand and build a model for magic-angle bilayer graphene; 3. phenomena of dimensional decoupling at various continuous Mott transitions; 4. possible field-induced neutral Fermi surface and QCD3-Chern-Simons quantum criticalities in Kitaev materials; 5. examples showing that the commonly-employed methods for detecting topological orders may generate spurious results; 6. a classification of three-dimensional symmetry enriched U(1) quantum spin liquids, and the applications of the ideas therein to study topological crystalline insulators.
