Abstract

By deriving and studying the coordinate representation for the one-spinon one-holon wave function we show that spinons and holons in the supersymmetric t-J model with 1/r2 interaction attract each other. The interaction causes a probability enhancement in the one-spinon one-holon wave function at short separation between the particles. We express the hole spectral function for a finite lattice in terms of the probability enhancement, given by the one-spinon one-holon wave function at zero separation. In the thermodynamic limit, the spinon-holon attraction turns into the square-root divergence in the hole spectral function.
