Abstract: During this thesis we make use of the lately developed dynamical mean-field approximation to look at problems in strongly correlated electron systems, including high-Tc cuprate superconductors furthermore to some couple of quantum chemical reference systems. Starting with presenting the establishing the interacting electron systems, adopted getting an account across the current understanding in the physics of high-Tc cuprate superconductors. The approximate appliances type in the theoretical framework will most likely be discussed later on. Some quantum chemical method of many-body quantum systems are incorporated for review. Next we present the record methods found in our study. The formalism within the dynamical mean-field approximation will most likely be introduced such as the single-site and cluster versions, adopted using the Exact Diagonalization impurity solver for the solution within the quantum impurity model. Maximum Entropy analytic continuation technique is also discussed, that’s helpful to get the physically relevant response functions. You need to apply dynamical mean-field approximation to high-Tc cuprate superconductors. The 2-particle response functions, for example Raman scattering intensity and optical conductivity, are computed for the two dimensional Hubbard model.
The calculations would be the vertex corrections which are needed to acquire physically reasonable leads to interacting electron systems. We see the physics within the pseudogap in cuprates. The suppression of density of states near Fermi surface exists within our calculations, that’s in qualitative agreement while using the experimental data. Finally we discuss using dynamical mean-field theory to quantum chemistry. We extend the formalism of dynamical mean-field approximation to finite systems, and compare its performance in hydrogen clusters with some other spatial configurations as well as other leading quantum chemical approaches. Dynamical mean-field theory involves mapping onto a quantum impurity model. We further see the quantum impurity model representation within the transition metal dioxide molecules. The conceptual and technical difficulties will most likely be discussed.
