Abstract: The electronic systems in one dimension have features quite distinct from those in higher dimensions. The one-dimensional Fermi surface consists of two discrete points, while in higher dimensions it is continuous. The low-energy particle-hole pairs’ spectrum, which arises from momentum and energy conservations for wave vector between zero and twice of Fermi wave vector does not exist in one dimension. In higher dimensions, this region of missing states is filled in. The Fourier transform of one-dimensional Coulomb potential diverges. This led to wide spread belief that one-dimensional interacting electronic systems should exhibit non-Fermi liquid (known as Luttinger liquid) behaviour. However, there is still no unambiguous evidence both for the real existence or non-existence of Luttinger liquid behaviour in a realistic quantum wire. This talk briefly reviews key aspects of Fermi liquid approach and Tomonaga-Luttinger liquid approach for a one-dimensional system. In this paper, structure factor, pair distribution function and electron-electron scattering, which exhibit similarity between two approaches in low energy and momentum regime, is reviewed.
