Abstract

Two-dimensional gapless Dirac fermions emerge in various condensed-matter settings. In the presence of interactions such Dirac systems feature critical points and the precision determination of their exponents is a prime challenge for quantum many-body methods. In a field-theoretical language, these critical points can be described by Gross-Neveu-Yukawa-type models and in my talk I will show some results on Gross-Neveu critical behavior using field theoretical approaches beyond the leading order. To that end, I will first present higher-loop perturbative RG calculations for generic Gross-Neveu-Yukawa models and compare estimates for the exponents with recent corresponding results from Quantum Monte Carlo simulations and the conformal bootstrap. Then, I will discuss a more exotic variant of Gross-Neveu-Yukawa models which describes the interacting fractionalized excitations of two-dimensional frustrated spin-orbital magnets. Here, we have provided field-theoretical estimates for the critical exponents employing higher-order epsilon expansion, large-N calculations, and functional renormalization group.
