Title: Numerically exact full counting statistics of the energy current in the Kondo regime

Abstract

In this study, we use the inchworm quantum Monte Carlo method to investigate the full counting statistics of particle and energy currents in a strongly correlated quantum dot. Our method is used to extract the heat fluctuations and entropy production of a quantum thermoelectric device, as well as cumulants of the particle and energy currents. The energy-particle current cross correlations reveal information on the preparation of the system and the interplay of thermal and electric currents. Finally, we demonstrate the signature of a crossover from Coulomb blockade to Kondo physics in the energy current fluctuations, and show how the conventional master equation approach to full counting statistics systematically fails to capture this crossover.
