Title: Dispersion and line shape of plasmon satellites in one, two, and three dimensions

Using state-of-the-art many-body Green's function calculations based on the GW plus cumulant approach, we analyze the properties of plasmon satellites in the electron spectral function resulting from electron-plasmon interactions in one-, two-, and three-dimensional systems. Specifically, we show how their dispersion relation, line shape, and linewidth are related to the properties of the constituent electrons and plasmons. In addition, to gain insight into the many-body processes giving rise to the formation of plasmon satellites, we connect the GW plus cumulant approach to a many-body wave-function picture of electron-plasmon interactions and introduce the coupling-strength-weighted electron-plasmon joint density states as a powerful concept for understanding plasmon satellites.
