Research and Publications
My research has been focused on the condensed matter theory, especially on the strongly correlated
electron systems. In the past two decades, I have been actively working on heavy fermion and
Kondo problems, quantum Hall effect, high temperature superconductivity, and magnetism. I have
applied many-body technique to identify and to study the physics in these systems.
I have more than ninety publications with over 3,800 citations. I was ranked one of ”ISI’s 1120
Most Cited Physicists, 1981 - June 1997”. One of my papers (Physical Review B 37, 3759 (1988))
on the model for high temperature superconductivity was twice listed in ”Science Watch’s Top Ten
for Physics”
. This paper has more than 1600 citations. Publications indicated with *** are some
of my representative papers. The times cited of each paper except those most recently published is
also indicated.
See Science Watch, Vol. 1, No. 5, May 1990, and Vol. 1 No. 7, July and August, 1990. Science
Watch is published by Institute for Scientific Information. The rankings in Science Watch are based
on the number of citations in a two-month period for the papers published within the past two year.
