Abstract

We review the nature of strongly correlated electronic states in rare earth and actinide compounds, focusing on localized versus itinerant electronic states in CeRhIn5, quantum critical phenomena in YbIr2Zn20, residual resistivity in CeCu6, metamagnetism in heavy fermion compounds, and unconventional superconductivity in CeIrSi3 without inversion symmetry in the crystal structure, emphasizing that sample quality is essentially important to clarify the characteristic features for the heavy fermion compounds.
