Modèles de Hubbard unidimensionels généralisés

Abstract : This thesis is devoted to the one-dimensional integrable Hubbard model and its generalizations. The Hubbard model is one of the fundamental models in condensed matter physics which describes interacting electrons on the lattice. It has very rich physical structure. Inspite of its construction simplicity it has been applied to diverse problems as high-Tc superconductivity, band magnetism and the metal-insulator transition. In one dimension the Hubbard model is an integrable model which has been intensively studied and served as a theoretical laboratory for the condensed matter physics. Recently, the integrable systems and in particular the Hubbard model, have surprisingly appeared in the AdS/CFT correspondence context. The intersection point between the fields is the Bethe equations: the ones of new integrable models and the generalizations of existing ones are relevant in the application in AdS/CFT duality. In the first part of the thesis, we present basis notions of the quantum integrability: the R-matrix formalism, the Yang-Baxter equation, integrable spin chains etc. In the second part we review several fundamental results of the one-dimensional Hubbard model: the Coordinate Bethe Ansatz solution, real solutions of the Lieb-Wu equations etc. Moreover, applications in the AdS/CFT duality are considered. However, it turns out that certain modifications of the integrable Hubbard model are necessary to reproduce the correct results of the AdS/CFT context. This is one of the main motivations of the studies of generalized Hubbard models. The fourth chapter is devoted to generalizations of the Hubbard model and we focus our attention on supersymmetric ones. The fifth chapter con- tains the results obtained in the framework of this thesis on the supersymmetric generalizations of the Hubbard models. Namely, the Coordinate Bethe Ansatz solution and real solutions of the Bethe equations in the thermodynamic limit are exposed. We point out that the obtained Bethe equations differs from the Lieb-Wu ones by phases which appearance is encouraging sign for the application in the AdS/CFT context. We also discuss possible applications in the AdS/CFT duality and in con- densed matter physics.
