Phase transitions due to geometric changes in accessible phase space


  • 18-Dec-2018

There is a common belief among physicists that short-range interaction in a classical one-dimensional system cannot lead to a phase transition. Tridib Sadhu of TIFR Mumbai, along with collaborators Sushant Saryal and Deepak Dhar from IISER-Pune and Juliane U.Klamser from ENS-Paris, has now produced a clear counterexample showing that phase transitions can surely occur in one-dimension due to a fundamentally new mechanism related to geometrical changes in accessible phase space.
