Abstract:
The dual boson approach to strongly correlated systems generally involves a dynamic (frequency-dependent) interaction in the auxiliary impurity model. In this work, we explore the consequences of forcing this interaction to be instantaneous (frequency independent) via the use of a self-consistency condition on the instantaneous susceptibility. The result is a substantial simplification of the impurity model, especially with an eye on realistic multiband implementations, while keeping desirable properties of the dual boson approach, such as the charge conservation law, intact. We show and illustrate numerically that this condition enforces the absence of phase transitions in finite systems, as should be expected from general physical considerations, and respects the Mermin-Wagner theorem. In particular, the theory does not allow the metal-to-insulator phase transition associated with the formation of the magnetic order in a two-dimensional system. At the same time, the metal-to-charge-ordered phase transition is allowed, as it is not associated with the spontaneous breaking of a continuous symmetry, and is accurately captured by the introduced approach.
