Desperately seeking spin liquids IV

Rajiv Singh has a really nice Physics article, which gives a very clear commentary on a recent PRL by Anders Sandvik, which looks at numerical evidence for deconfined quantum criticality in a Heisenberg model which exhibits a quantum phase transition between Neel order and Valence Bond Solid order.

Anders' paper seems to raise important questions about the field theory descriptions of these transitions.
