  • We study the two-dimensional periodic Anderson model at half filling using quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) techniques. The ground state undergoes a magnetic order-disorder transition as a function of the effective exchange coupling between the conduction and localized bands. Low-lying spin and charge excitations are determined using the maximum entropy method to analytically continue the QMC data. At finite temperature we find a competition between the Kondo effect and antiferromagnetic order which develops in the localized band through Ruderman-Kittel-Kasuya-Yosida interactions.

  • We have developed a new efficient and accurate impurity solver for the single impurity Anderson model (SIAM), which is based on a non-perturbative recursion technique in a space of operators and involves expanding the self-energy as a continued fraction. The method has no special occupation number or temperature restrictions; the only approximation is the number of levels of the continued fraction retained in the expansion. We also show how this approach can be used as a new approach to Dynamical Mean Field Theory (DMTF) and illustrate this with the Hubbard model. The three lowest orders of recursion give the Hartree-Fock,more » Hubbard I, and Hubbard III approximations. A higher level of recursion is able to reproduce the expected 3-peak structure in the spectral function and Fermi liquid behavior.« less
  • The q-dependent magnetic susceptibility chi(q) and effective moment eff/(q) of heavy-fermion quasiparticles are studied at T = 0 in the Zou-Anderson spin-orbit-coupling model for the simple cubic lattice. Antiferromagnetic (q = Q) correlations are shown to be dominantly enhanced by interband effects for relatively large quasiparticle fillings. The obtained moments eff//sup 2/(0)/similar to/ B//sup 2/ and eff//sup 2/(Q)/similar to/ B//sup 2/ are in good agreement with the Zou-Anderson value and the experimental value for CeAl/sub 2/, respectively, but are in disagreement with the experimental values for CeCu/sub 2/Si/sub 2/ and CeAl/sub 3/.
  • We present results of quantum Monte Carlo simulations of the degenerate, single-impurity, Anderson model. Using maximum-entropy methods, we performed the analytic continuation of the imaginary-time Green's functions produced by these simulations to obtain their real-frequency, single-particle, spectral densities for degeneracies of [ital N]=2, 4, and 6. Incorporating higher degeneracies into the model enables us, on the one hand, to compare Monte Carlo results with the self-consistent large-[ital N] approximation (NCA) and numerical-renormalization-group calculations (NGR) and, on the other hand, to bring the models closer to the physical systems. The low temperatures reached in our calculations are comparable to, or evenmore » lower than, the corresponding Kondo temperatures. The NCA and NRG calculations were found to show qualitatively good agreement with our results: the Kondo temperature increases with increasing degeneracy, and the amplitude of the side peaks in the spectral density decreases as degeneracy increases while the half-width of these peaks increases.« less
