Title: d -wave superconductivity in the presence of nearest-neighbor Coulomb repulsion

Dynamic cluster quantum Monte Carlo calculations for a doped two-dimensional extended Hubbard model are used to study the stability and dynamics of d-wave pairing when a nearest-neighbor Coulomb repulsion V is present in addition to the on-site Coulomb repulsion U. We find that d-wave pairing and the superconducting transition temperature Tc are only weakly suppressed as long as V does not exceed U/2. This stability is traced to the strongly retarded nature of pairing that allows the d-wave pairs to minimize the repulsive effect of V. When V approaches U/2, large momentum charge fluctuations are found to become important and to give rise to a more rapid suppression of d-wave pairing and T c than for smaller V.
