Efficient evaluation of the polarization function in the dynamical mean-field theory.

Friedrich Krien

The dynamical susceptibility of strongly correlated electronic systems can be calculated within the framework of the dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT). The required measurement of the four-point vertex of the auxiliary impurity model is however costly and restricted to a finite grid of Matsubara frequencies, leading to a cutoff error. It is shown that the propagation of this error to the lattice response function can be minimized by virtue of an exact decomposition of the DMFT polarization function into local and nonlocal parts. The former is measured directly by the impurity solver, while the latter is given in terms of a ladder equation for the Hedin vertex that features an unprecedentedly fast decay of frequency summations compared to previous calculation schemes, such as the one of the dual boson approach. Neglecting nonlocal corrections furthermore yields an improved polarization diagram for the TRILEX method. In finite dimensions the DMFT susceptibility exhibits spurious mean-field criticality, therefore, a two-particle self-consistent and frequency-dependent correction term is introduced, similar to the Moriya-$\lambda$ correction of the dynamical vertex approximation. Applications to the two- and three-dimensional Hubbard models on the square and cubic lattices show that the expected critical behavior near an antiferromagnetic instability is recovered.
