ALPS 2 Examples:Paramagnetic Metal
Paramagnetic metal and extrapolation errors
In this example we simulate the Hubbard model on the Bethe lattice with interaction at a temperature using a paramagnetic self-consistency. We will calculate the self-energy and compare it to Fig. 15 in the DMFT review by Georges it et al., where Hirsch-Fye and Exact Diagonalizationr results are shown for the same system. In contrast to the Hirsch-Fye algorithm the two Continuous time Monte Carlo algorithms CT-HYB and CT-INT do not suffer from discretization errors and reproduce the ED-results.
The parameter files and python scripts are located in the directory tutorials/dmft-06-paramagnet in your ALPS install directory. You can run the simulations by executing
on the command line or by running the python scripts tutorial6a.py and tutorial6b.py with the vispython interpreter. At each DMFT iteration the self-energy is written to the file selfenergy_i. Plot the converged self-energy and compare your results to Fig. 15 in Georges it et al..
