  Possible ground state wavefunctions of anti-ferromagnetic Heisenberg spin chains

+ 0 like - 0 dislike
46 views
  1. What are the ground state wavefunctions of the anti-ferromagnetic (AFM) Heisenberg spin chains?

Is that which of the following? $$| ↑↓↑↓ · · · ↑↓>$$ or $$| ↓↑↓↑ . . . ↓↑>$$ or $$| ↑↓↑↓ · · · ↑↓> +| ↓↑↓↑ . . . ↓↑>$$ or $$| ↑↓↑↓ · · · ↑↓> - | ↓↑↓↑ . . . ↓↑>$$

  1. What are the number of ground states?

  2. What are the Neel states?

@Nobert Both cases, spin 1/2 and spin 1

You are aware that the physics of integer and half-integer Heisenberg chains is fundamentally different?

Yes. Spin-1/2: One is gapless like O(3) NLSM. Spin-1: The other is gapped, either trivial or Haldane phase.

Wonder how to view the wavefunction.

@Norbert Schuch I post a new question maybe you also know it -- a lattice model
