Abstract: In this thesis some new ideas to perform the analysis of Strongly Correlated Electronic Systems (SCES) are developed. In particular the use of non-linear canonical transformations is considered thoroughly. Using such transformations it is possible, in some circumstances, to simplify the quantum problem redefining the fermionic degrees of freedom used to describe the system. To understand and use effectively these non-linear transformations it is convenient to work in the Majorana fermion represe... more
