Title: Determinant quantum Monte Carlo study of d -wave pairing in the plaquette Hubbard hamiltonian

Abstract

We used the determinant Quantum Monte Carlo (DQMC) to determine the pairing and magnetic response for a Hubbard model built up from four-site clusters - a two-dimensional square lattice consisting of elemental 2x2 plaquettes with hopping t and on-site repulsion U coupled by an interplaquette hopping t' ≤ t. Superconductivity in this geometry has previously been studied by a variety of analytic and numeric methods, with differing conclusions concerning whether the pairing correlations and transition temperature are raised near half-filling by the inhomogeneous hopping or not. For U/t = 4, DQMC indicates an optimal t'/t ≈ 0.4 at which the pairing vertex is most attractive. We also found that optimal t'/t increases with U/t. We then contrast our results for this plaquette model with a Hamiltonian which instead involves a regular pattern of site energies whose large site energy limit is the three band CuO 2 model; we show that there the inhomogeneity rapidly, and monotonically, suppresses pairing.
