Abstract

It has long been known that a metal near an instability to antiferromagnetism also has a weak-coupling Cooper instability to spin-singlet d-wave-like superconductivity. However, the theory of the antiferromagnetic quantum critical point flows to strong-coupling in two spatial dimensions, and so the fate of the superconductivity has also been unclear. I will describe a method to realize the generic antiferromagnetic quantum critical in a metal in a sign-problem-free Monte Carlo simulation. Results showing Fermi surface reconstruction and unconventional spin-singlet superconductivity across the critical point are obtained.
