Drude weight in non solvable quantum spin chains
Abstract: For a quantum spin chain or 1D fermionic system, we prove that the Drude weight D verifies the universal Luttinger liquid relation $v_s^2=D/\kappa$, where $\kappa$ is the susceptibility and $v_s$ is the Fermi velocity. This result is proved by rigorous Renormalization Group methods and is true for any weakly interacting system, regardless its integrablity. This paper, combined with a previous paper of the same authors, completes the proof of the Luttinger liquid conjecture for such systems.
