The power of the method increased tremendously fueled by advances in impurity solvers.

Extensions to cluster of sites, CDMFT capture short range correlations, k dependent self

Over the past few years evidence for the accuracy of the method for Hubbard models accumulated very rapidly from: a) comparison of different cluster sizes,

b) comparison of dmft predictions with experiments

c) experiments in cold atom traps realizing the Hubbard model and compared with DMFT

d) It’s now possible to compare with exact numerical solutions of Hubbard model at high temperatures. (agreement within a few percent) [Gull et. al.]

Just as with LDA, we know how to interpret the results and where and how ( in which direction ) it is biased. Local approximation is very accurate in many regions of parameter space.

Non locality in time is essential. [ Warning for other methods!!!]

LDA+ DMFT for LaFxO1-xFeAs

.

Correlations are important: LaOFeAs is on the itinerant side but not too far away from the metal-insulator transition . Non trivial renormalizations Z~ .2 -.3

Typical parameters U=4eV, J=0.7eV. Bad semimetal at high temperatures. Large scattering rate.

ALL 5 d bands important (for J>0.3) relatively small crystal fields

For J=0.7eV, Uc2 =4.5 Correlated insulator.

“Since the Coulomb correlation is below the critical U for this system to undergo a Mott transition, an itinerant approach might be adequate. This will involve a generalization of the spin-fluctuation exchange mechanism to a multiorbital situation. In adition the pairing interaction might involve not just spin but also orbital fluctuations within the d subshell. “

The electron phonon coupling is too small to account for superconductivity. ( similar results obtained by D. Singh and

Boeri et. al.)

Possible tests of these ideas and methods

Possible tests of these ideas and methods

  • Coherent spectral weight in dispersive Fe and As like features would only account for a fraction of the total weight.

  • Compute the properties in the ordered state with the same parameters used for the PM states.

  • LDA has difficulties getting the right moment, does LDA+DMFT solve that problem ? Comparison across families. [ Yin et. al. Work in progress]

Magnetic phase of the ironarsenide compounds: important issues.

  • LDA predicted the correct magnetic

    Predicted a strong anisotropy of the magnetic excitation spectra. J. Dong et al PRL 83, 27006 (2008). Z. P, Yin, et al, PRL 101, 047001 (2008).

  • PROBLEMS WITH ITINERANT PICTURE

  • LSDA predicts a moment of 2 muB . Expt ~ 1mub. Origin of failure of LSDA ?

  • Needs ad hoc adjustments i.e. negative U, still the spectra does not fit.

  • Anisotropy observed dc transport and in STM.

  • Chu, J.-H. et al. Evidence for an electron nematic phase

  • Is the origin of the anisotropy structural or electronic ?

  • Does the nematic order drive the magnetic order or visceversa ?

    PROBLEMS WITH LOCALIZED PICTURE

  • Short bond ferromagnetic, long bond antiferromangnetic.

  • Short bond is less conductive than the long bond.


Is the magnetism itinerant or localized

Is the magnetism itinerant or localized ?

  • What drives the magnetism. Itinerant picture [ reduction in double occupancy, cost in kinetic energy ]. Localized picture [ gain in superexchange , pay double occupancy ].

  • What selects the stripe state ?

  • Conductivity measurments + theory should help elucidate these issues.

Magnetic Stripe Phase of the FeAs materials: new insights from LDA+DMFT Z. Yin K. Haule and GK [ in preparation]

a) At low energies conductivity goes up. Rapid coherence crossover from an incoherent normal state compensates for a loss of carriers. Gain kinetic energy at very low energies!

  • For intermediate L, loss in carriers (kinetic energy )

Focus on changes of Neff(L, T) at various energy scales L, in going to the magnetic state.


Towards an ab initio theory of correlated materials the challenge of the iron pnictides gabriel kotliar physics de

  • c) Spin polarization is a high energy phenomena, the exchange splitting is three times bigger at infinity than at zero. LSDA will miss that. [ Even with negative U, will not get both spectra and moment right ! ]

  • d) The cost in kinetic energy is compensated by a gain in Hunds rule energy! Mott Hunds metal. [ Hunds is in, Hubbard is out !]

  • e) Validates our earlier view that the Hunds rule coupling and its renormalization governs the physics of this material. At high energies J is strong .7 ev, and induces the magnetic moment.

  • f) At low energies the Hunds rule coupling renormalizes down to zero and good quasiparticles emerge. Coherence incohrence crossover.


Does this matter for superconductivity the next step

Does This Matter for Superconductivity ??The next step.

  • Orbital polarization is a LOW energy phenomena. [ Spin and orbital densities behave in complete opposite ways ]. The most favorable form is orbital polarization is ferromagnetic arrange so as to occupy the orbital which can move better along the AF direction. [ i.e. xz moves better along x direction ]

When to use dmft

When to use DMFT

  • Designed to treat strongly correlated electron materials in [ for example Mott transition problem in 3d transition metal oxides]

  • Designed to compute one electron spectral functions, photoemission and BIS

  • Designed to treat finite electronic temperature

  • Combines ideas of physics (bands ) and chemistry (local CI). Cluster schemse become expensive!

  • STILL ONLY GAME IN TOWN FOR A SMALL CALLS OF SYSTEMS. AS A GENERAL PURPOSE TOOL AND IN THE “GREY AREAS “ CONSIDER:

  • Relatively new method. Still in rapid developing.


Dmft the middle way

DMFT : the middle way

  • More expensive than density functional theory ( because it targets spectral properties)

  • Less expensive than direct application of QMC or CI (because it only uses these tools locally )

  • Utilizes advances in electronic structure [ DMFT can be built on top of LDA, hybrid-DFT, GW ] and techniques such as QMC or CI, and its various levels of approx to solve the impurity problem.

  • Greens function method, based on a judicious use of the local approximation. Proved its mettle in the Mott transition problem in the context of the model Hamiltonians.

  • Realistic DMFT Goal, combine those ideas with technology from electronic structure methods to understand and predict properties of correlated materials.

  • Testing methods: “simple” models, experiments, predictive power ? [ lots of fun !]
