Title from title slide.
Abstract: Starting from Fermi liquid theory of electrons from the metallic side, the speaker propose an alternative picture to the Brinkman-Rice picture of Mott metal-insulator transition where the (insulating) spin-liquid states are viewed as Fermi liquid states with singular Landau parameter F1s. The charge and spin transport properties and electromagnetism of spin liquid states are studied under such a phenomenology. The appearance and consequences of Pomeranchuk instability to spin-liquid states are discussed.
