摘要

We study the behavior of the entropy of the pseudogap Bose-Fermi Kondo model within a dynamical large-N limit, where N is related to the symmetry group of the model. This model is a general quantum impurity model that describes a localized level coupled to a fermionic bath having a density of states that vanishes in a power-law fashion near the Fermi energy and to a bosonic bath possessing a power-law spectral density below a cutoff energy. As a function of the couplings to the baths, various quantum phase transitions can occur. We study how the impurity entropy changes across these zero-temperature transitions and compare our results with predictions based on the g-theorem. This is accomplished by an analysis of the leading and subleading scaling behaviors. Our analysis shows that the g-theorem does not apply to the pseudogap Bose-Fermi Kondo model at the large-N level. This inapplicability originates from an anomalous contribution to the scaling function in the hydrodynamic regime where kBT>ω which is absent in the quantum coherent regime, i.e., for kBT<ω. We also compare our results with those obtained for the Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev model.
