  • Material properties of low-dimensional organic donor--acceptor (DA) metals are comparatively discussed. It is shown that the low-temperature superconductivity in organic solids and the nonconventional temperature dependence of the dc electrical conductivity {sigma} have the same microscopic precursor, softening of lattice modes caused by a divergence of the generalized susceptibility on effectively flat Fermi surfaces (FS) ({ital T} dependence of {sigma}), as well as the resulting enhancement of the electron--phonon coupling (superconductivity). Prerequisite for this behavior are sizeable electronic charge fluctuations {l angle}({Delta}{ital n}{sup 2}{sub {ital i}}){r angle} in the strongly correlated organic DA salts at any temperature. Nonvanishing fluctuations, whichmore » are maintained also in the limit of almost perfect interatomic correlations, are possible as a result of nonintegral effective electron densities {ital {bar n}}{sub {ital i}}{ne}1.0. The electronic charge fluctuations at {ital T}=0 K and finite temperature are studied by an analytic many-body model. The {ital T} dependence of the fluctuations is discussed as a function of the accessible electron density {ital {bar n}}{sub {ital i}}.« less
  • The dielectric response function of a strongly correlated superlattice is calculated in the quasilocalized charge (QLC) approximation. The resulting QLC static local-field correction, which contains both intralayer and interlayer pair-correlational effects, is identical to the correlational part of the third-frequency-moment sum-rule coefficient. This approximation treats the interlayer and intralayer couplings on an equal footing. The resulting dispersion relation is first analyzed to determine the effect of intralayer coupling on the out-of-phase acoustic-mode dispersion; in this approximation the interlayer coupling is suppressed and the mutual interaction of the layers is taken into account only through the average random-phase approximation (RPA) field.more » In the resulting mode dispersion, the onset of a finite-{ital k} ({ital k} being the in-plane wave number) reentrant low-frequency excitation developing (with decreasing {ital d}/{ital a}) into a dynamical instability is indicated ({ital a} being the in-plane Wigner-Seitz radius and {ital d} the distance between adjacent lattice planes). This dynamical instability parallels a static structural instability reported earlier both for a bilayer electron system and a superlattice and presumably indicates a structural change in the electron liquid. If one takes account of interlayer correlations beyond the RPA, the acoustic excitation spectrum is dramatically modified by the appearance of an energy gap which also has a stabilizing effect on the instability. We extend a previous energy gap study at {ital k}=0 [G. Kalman, Y. Ren, and K. I. Golden, Phys Rev. B {bold 50}, 2031 (1994)] to a calculation of the dispersion of the gapped acoustic excitation spectrum in the long-wavelength domain. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}« less
  • We study the solution of the following problem: What are the ground-state properties of the many-body system composed of spin-l/2 fermions interacting via a zerorange, infinite scattering length contact interaction? Sometimes referred to as the 'George Bertsch problem', it is of particular interest in astrophysics in connection with the equation of state for neutron matter and has been revisited recently with the advent of experimental studies in ultracold fermionic atom gases of the crossover from the regime of Bardeen-Schriffer-Cooper (BCS) weakly-bound Cooper pairs to the regime of Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) of diatomic molecules.

We will show that new insights into the solution to this problem are obtained in the context of a coupled-cluster (exp S) expansion approach to calculating the equation of state formore » dilute fermionic systems and that present state-of-the-art Monte Carlo calculations have not yet provided the definitive answer.« less
