Phase diagram of SU(N) Dirac fermions on the π-flux lattice with a bond-bond interaction — •Johannes S Hofmann, Martin Hohenadler, and Fakher F Assaad — Institut für Theoretische Physik und Astrophysik, Universität Würzburg, Am Hubland, D-97074 Würzburg, Germany
We use auxiliary-field quantum Monte Carlo simulations to study the phase diagram of SU(N) Dirac fermions with a bond-bond interaction V similar to Ref.  and an associated O(2N) symmetry. In contrast to previous work,
we consider a π-flux rather than a honeycomb lattice. The different coordination number is expected to favor antiferromagnetic (AFM) over valence bond solid (VBS) order. Accordingly, whereas AFM order is absent from the N-V phase diagram for N>2 in Ref. , we find an AFM phase up to N=3. Our results are consistent with Gross-Neveu semimetal-VBS transitions for N>1 and deconfined VBS-AFM quantum critical points for N=2 and N=3.
