DMFT + electronic structure method Basic idea of DMFT: reduce the quantum many body problem to a one site or a cluster of sites problem, in a medium of non interacting electrons obeying a self-consistency condition. (A. Georges et al. , RMP 68, 13 (1996)). DMFT in the language of functionals: DMFT sums up all local diagrams in BK functional Basic idea of DMFT+electronic structure method (LDA or GW): For less correlated bands (s, p): use LDA or GW For correlated bands (f or d): with DMFT add all local diagrams. Gives total energy and spectra Technical Implementation is Involved. Different Impurity Solvers. [ED-NCA- Expansions in t and U , etc ] Different forms of Self consistency conditions for the bath in the clusters case.

Theoretical Approach [P. WAnderson, 1987] • Connection of the cuprate anomalies to the proximity to a doped Mott insulator without magnetic long range order. [Spin Liquid] • Study low energy one band models, Hubbard and t-J. Needed. a good mean field theory of the problem. RVB physics requires a plaquette as a reference frame.

CDMFT study of cuprates. • A functional of the cluster Greens function. Allows the investigation of the normal state underlying the superconducting state, by forcing a symmetric Weiss function, we can follow the normal state near the Mott transition. • Earlier studies use QMC (Katsnelson and Lichtenstein, (1998) M Hettler et. al T. Maier et. al. (2000). ) used QMC as an impurity solver and DCA as cluster scheme. (Limits U to less than 8 t ) • Use exact diag ( Krauth Caffarel 1995 ) and vertex corrected NCA as a solvers to study larger U’s and CDMFT as the mean field scheme.

Conclusion • DMFT versatile tool for advancing our understanding, and predicting properties of strongly correlated materials. • Theoretical spectroscopy in the making. Substantial work is needed to refine the tool. • Great opportunity for experimental-theoretical interactions. • Refine the questions and our understanding by focusing on differences between the DMFT results and the experiments.

How is the Mott insulator approached from the superconducting state ? Work in collaboration with M. Capone M Civelli O Parcollet

• In BCS theory the order parameter is tied to the superconducting gap. This is seen at U=4 t, but not at large U. • How is superconductivity destroyed as one approaches half filling ?

Superconducting State t’=0 • • Does it superconduct ? Yes. Unless there is a competing phase. Is there a superconducting dome ? Yes. Provided U /W is above the Mott transition. Does the superconductivity scale with J ? Yes. Provided U /W is above the Mott transition. Is superconductivity BCS like? Yes for small U/W. No for large U, it is RVB like!

• The superconductivity scales with J, as in the RVB approach. Qualitative difference between large and small U. The superconductivity goes to zero at half filling ONLY above the Mott transition.

• Can we connect the superconducting state with the “underlying “normal” state “ ? What does the underlying “normal” state look like ?

CDMFT study of cuprates. • • • AFunctional of the cluster Greens function. Allows the investigation of the normal state underlying the superconducting state, by forcing a symmetric Weiss function, we can follow the normal state near the Mott transition. Earlier studies use QMC (Katsnelson and Lichtenstein, (1998) M Hettler et. T. Maier et. al. (2000). ) used QMC as an impurity solver and DCA as cluster scheme. (Limits U to less than 8 t ) Use exact diag ( Krauth Caffarel 1995 ) and vertex corrected NCA as a solvers to study larger U’s and CDMFT as the mean field scheme. Recently (K. Haule and GK ) the region near the superconducting –normal state transition temperature near optimal doping was studied using NCA + DCA-CDMFT.

Problems with the approach. • Stability of the MFT. Ex. Neel order. Slave boson MFT with Neel order predicts AF AND SC. [Inui et. al. 1988] Giamarchi and L’huillier (1987). • Mean field is too uniform on the Fermi surface, in contradiction with ARPES. [Penetration depth, Wen and Lee ][Raman spectra, sacutto’s talk, Photoemission ] • Description of the incoherent finite temperature regime. Development of DMFT in its plaquette version may solve some of these problems. !!
