The solver works directly on the real-frequency axis and yields high spectral resolution at all frequencies. We use a large number (Oð100Þ) of bath sites and therefore achieve an accurate representation of the bath. The solver can treat full rotationally invariant interactions with reasonable numerical effort. We show the efficiency and accuracy of the method by a benchmark for the three-orbital test-bed material SrVO . There we observe multiplet structures in the high-energy spectrum, which are almost impossible to resolve by other multi-orbital methods. The resulting structure of the Hubbard bands can be described as a broadened atomic spectrum with rescaled interaction parameters. Additional features emerge when U is increased. Finally, we show that our solver can be applied even to models with five orbitals. This impurity solver offers a new route to the calculation of precise real-frequency spectral functions of correlated materials.

REV. X 7, 031013 (2017) depend on the inclusion of full rotational invariance. In the (a) upper Hubbard band, a distinctive three-peak structure can be seen. This structure has not been resolved in other exact methods like CTQMC (because of problems with analytic continuation, see below) or NRG (because of the loga- rithmic discretization problem). In our real-time approach, high energies correspond to short times, where the calcu- lations are particularly precise . Most methods allow us to resolve structures in the Hubbard bands only in special cases (see Ref.  for an example using ED). Of course, atomic-limit-based algorithms such as the Hubbard-I approximation or noncrossing approximation (NCA) show atomiclike features, but they have very limited accuracy for the description of the low-energy quasiparticle excitations in the metallic phase . Thus, our FTPS solver combines the best of both worlds, with atomic multiplets at high (b) energy and excellent low-energy resolution at the same time. The energies of the three peaks in the upper Hubbard band differ depending on whether SF-PP terms are taken into account or not. Details of this peak structure, as well as additional excitations visible at higher energies, will be discussed below in Sec. IV C. First, we examine the convergence of our results with respect to the number of bath sites and compare our spectrum to CTQMC. The following discussion is mostly based on calculations without spin-flip and pair-hopping terms. In this case, the calculations can be done faster and with higher precision since there is no particle exchange FIG. 4. (a) We take the bath spectral function ΔðωÞ from the between impurities.

PHYS. REV. X 7, 031013 (2017) regime. In Fig. 9, we show results with U ¼ 5.5 eV at (a) constant J ¼ 0.6 eV. We see a shift of the upper Hubbard band to higher energies, but little shift of the hole excitation. Also, the central peak is shifted and gets slimmer since more weight is transferred into the Hubbard bands. Most importantly, as we approach the strongly correlated metallic regime, we clearly leave the realm where atomic physics can describe all the spectral features. We find that the three-peak structure of the upper Hubbard bands smears out and even vanishes. The close-up of the upper Hubbard band in Fig. 9 shows that with the help of the bare energy differences, all three atomic × peaks can be discerned again, accompanied by an addi- (b) tional structure at the low-energy side of the Hubbard band, which is reminiscent of the Hubbard side peaks found in the one- and two-band Hubbard models on the Bethe lattice  upon increasing U. We leave further investigation of this feature to future work. (a) FIG. 8. (a) Close-up of the three-peak structure for various values of J. Additionally, we show vertical lines for the J ¼ 0.6 eV spectrum at energies ω (position of the middle peak) and at ω þ 2J and ω − J. We see that the width of the upper M M Hubbard band is close to 3J. (b) Close-up of the small spectral peaks at high energies. These correspond to excitations into the N ¼ 3 sector of the atomic model (see Table I). The height of each peak can be estimated by the degeneracy of the atomic states. Effective parameters J are 0.53 eV (J ¼ 0.5 eV), 0.59 eV (J ¼ 0.6 eV), and 0.68 eV (J ¼ 0.7 eV). They are obtained from the difference between the two peaks that are highest in energy.

Again, we can describe the spectrum approximately by atomic physics with effec- tive parameters. Like in the case with density-density terms only, we also see the tiny excitations to states belonging to the atomic N ¼ 3 sector. FIG. 9.

It is not clear whether this picture is lines, one can discern a three-peak structure again, but it is valid for higher interaction strengths U in the metallic extended by a feature at the low energy side of the Hubbard band. 031013-10 FORK TENSOR-PRODUCT STATES: EFFICIENT MULTIORBITAL … PHYS.

Of course, the CTQMC, for which the necessary analytic continuation computational complexity is larger than in the three-orbital prohibits the resolution of fine structures in the spectral case, and it grows during time evolution. Calculating the function at higher energies. For our calculations with U ¼ 4.0 eV, each peak in the spectrum corresponds to an atomic excitation. Even excitations into states with three particles on the impurity are resolved, as tiny spectral peaks at high energies. Furthermore, upon increasing U,an additional structure appears on the inside of the Hubbard bands, similar to the precursors of the sharp Hubbard side peaks found for the one- and two-band Hubbard models on the Bethe lattice [29,35]. We have also shown that our approach is feasible for five-orbital models, by comparing results from the FTPS solver to CTQMC for an artificial five-band model.

APPENDIX A: INFLUENCE OF COMPUTATIONAL PARAMETERS In this appendix, we show that our results are very stable over a wide range of computational parameters. First, we focus on the linear-prediction method (Sec. A1). Then, we show that the results are converged with respect to the usual MPS approximation (Sec. A2). 1. Linear prediction In order to obtain smooth and sharp spectra, we used FIG. 12. Different truncation values t in the time evolution do linear prediction to extrapolate the Green’s function in time not influence the shape of the spectrum AðωÞ. [28,35]. Without going into detail, we state the fact that linear prediction has two parameters, the pseudo-inverse cutoff p and the order N of the linear prediction. Figure 11 parameter is the only approximation in the representation of inv shows that the results are converged in these parameters. a state as a tensor-product state, as we do not impose any We also show a DMFT run without any linear prediction, hard cutoff on the bond dimensions.
