Topology and stability of the Kondo phase in quark matter

12 Mar 2017 Yasui Shigehiro Suzuki Kei Itakura Kazunori

We investigate properties of the ground state of a light quark matter with heavy quark impurities. This system exhibits the "QCD Kondo effect" where the interaction strength between a light quark near the Fermi surface and a heavy quark increases with decreasing energy of the light quark towards the Fermi energy, and diverges at some scale near the Fermi energy, called the Kondo scale...
