Zigzag carbon nanotubes with generic electron-electron interactions

2009 Physical Review B  
A Hamiltonian is derived for a zigzag carbon nanotube with an arbitrary number of weak electron-electron charge and spin interactions, which become significant in ultraclean systems. The renormalization group and bosonization are used to determine the ground-state phase diagram. Our phase diagram contains some exotic phases which have not previously been predicted in carbon nanotubes with physically possible interaction profiles. Phases of the undoped case include Mott insulators and a variety
