<Abstract>We analyze the ground-state properties of strongly correlated electrons coupled with phonons by means of a generalized Gutzwiller wave function, which includes phononic degrees of freedom. We study in detail the paramagnetic half-filled Hubbard-Holstein model, where the electron-electron interaction can lead to a Mott transition and the electron-phonon coupling to a bipolaronic transition. We critically discuss the quality of the proposed wave function in describing the various transitions and crossovers that occur as a function of the parameters. Previous variational attempts are recovered as particular choices of the wave function, while keeping all the variational freedom allows to access regions of the phase diagram, otherwise inaccessible within previous variational approaches.</Abstract>2008-06-19T07:19:16ZExtended Gutzwiller wavefunction for the Hubbard-Holstein model

<Abstract>We introduce a new type of Gutzwiller variational wave function for correlated electrons coupled to phonons, able to treat on equal footing electronic and lattice degrees of freedom. We benchmark the wave function in the infinite-U Hubbard-Holstein model away from half-filling on a Bethe lattice, where we can directly compare with exact results by the Dynamical Mean-Field Theory. For this model, we find that variational results agree perfectly well with the exact ones. In particular the wave function correctly describes the crossover to a heavy polaron gas upon increasing the electron-phonon coupling.</Abstract>2007-07-20T08:20:21Z
