Abstract:
We study the single-band Hubbard model in the presence of a large spatially uniform electric field out of equilibrium. Using the Keldysh nonequilibrium formalism, we solve the problem using perturbation theory in the Coulomb interaction $U$. We present numerical results for the charge current, the total energy of the system, and the double occupancy on an infinite-dimensional hypercubic lattice with nearest-neighbor hopping. The system is isolated from an external bath and is in the paramagnetic state. We show that an electric field pulse can drive the system to a steady nonequilibrium state, which does not evolve into a thermal state. We compare results obtained within second-order perturbation theory (SOPT), self-consistent SOPT, and iterated perturbation theory (IPT). We also discuss the importance of initial conditions for a system which is not coupled to an external bath.
