Quantum Phase Transitions in a Finite System

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


A general procedure for studying finite-N effects in quantum phase transitions of finite systems is presented and applied to the critical-point dynamics of nuclei undergoing a shape-phase transition of second-order
(continuous), and of first-order with an arbitrary barrier.
