Breakdown of Traditional Many-Body Theories for Correlated Electrons

Breakdown of Traditional Many-Body Theories for Correlated Electrons Starting from the (Hubbard) model of an atom, we demonstrate that the uniqueness of the mapping from the interacting to the noninteracting Green function, G→G0, is strongly violated, by providing numerous explicit examples of different G0 leading to the same physical G. We argue that there are indeed infinitely many such G0, with numerous crossings with the physical solution. We show that this rich functional structure is directly related to the divergence of certain classes of (irreducible vertex) diagrams, with important consequences for traditional many-body physics based on diagrammatic expansions. Physically, we ascribe the onset of these highly nonperturbative manifestations to the progressive suppression of the charge susceptibility induced by the formation of local magnetic moments and/or resonating valence bond (RVB) states in strongly correlated electron systems. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review Letters American Physical Society (APS)
