Using an organic massless Dirac fermion system, we found that massless Dirac fermions undergo a quantum phase transition without creating any mass gap even in the strong coupling regime.

Ironbased superconductor, Ba_{1x}Rb_{x}Fe_{2}As_{2}, exhibits “strange metal” behavior—linear dependence of resistivity on temperature. It seems that hidden electronic nematic fluctuations play a greater role than the wellknown antiferromagnetic fluctuations.

Based on the Kubo–Luttinger linear response theory, we discovered that the lowT Seebeck coefficient for Mott variablerange hopping in a ddimensional system varies as S ∝ T^{d}^{/(d+1)}, which is different from the conventional S ∝ T^{(}^{d}^{−1)/(}^{d}^{+1)}. In addition, the experimental data for S of CuCrTiS_{4} at low T are in excellent agreement with our prediction S ∝ T^{3/4} (d = 3).

“The energy level of an electron state increases as the number of nodes in its wave function increases.” The preceding statement, often found in textbooks, was challenged by our largescale DFT (densityfunctional theory) calculations performed for the decavacancy in Si crystal.
