Abstract

I will give an update on the status of the potential spin liquid phase in the Hubbard model on the honeycomb lattice and will report results from mainly quantum Monte Carlo simulations of graphene nanoribbons and the instabilities of the Bernal-stacked bilayer system within the Hubbard-model description.
