Superconducting phase in the BCS model with imaginary
magnetic field (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We prove that in the BCS model with an imaginary magnetic field
at positive temperature a spontaneous symmetry breaking (SSB) and
an off-diagonal long range order (ODLRO) occur. Here the BCS model
is meant to be a self-adjoint operator on the Fermionic Fock space,
consisting of a free part describing the electrons' nearest neighbor
hopping and a quartic interacting part describing a long range
interaction between Cooper pairs. The interaction with the imaginary
magnetic field is given by the z-component of the spin operator
multiplied by a pure imaginary parameter. The SSB and the ODLRO are
shown in the infinite-volume limit of the thermal average over the
full Fermionic Fock space. The insertion of the imaginary magnetic
field changes the gap equation. Consequently the SSB and the ODLRO
are shown in high temperature, weak coupling regimes where these
phenomena do not take place in the conventional BCS model. The proof
is based on the method of Grassmann integration.
