Resumen© 2014 American Physical Society. We study the different phases in the Quantum Electrodynamics of three-dimensional Dirac semimetals depending on the number N of Dirac fermions, using renormalization group methods and the self-consistent resolution of the Schwinger-Dyson equation. We find that, for N<4, a phase with dynamical generation of mass prevails at sufficiently strong coupling, sharing the same physics of the excitonic instability in two-dimensional Dirac semimetals. For N≥4, we show that the phase diagram has instead a line of critical points characterized by the suppression of the quasiparticle weight at low energies, making the system fall into the class of marginal Fermi liquids. Such a boundary marks the transition to a kind of strange metal which can still be defined in terms of electron quasiparticles, but with parameters that have large imaginary parts implying an increasing deviation from the conventional Fermi liquid picture.
