We study strongly correlated Hubbard systems extended to symmetric N-component fermions. We focus on the intermediate-temperature regime between magnetic superexchange and interaction energy, which is relevant to current ultracold fermionic atom experiments. The N-component fermions are represented by slave particles, and, by using a diagrammatic technique based on the atomic limit, spectral functions are analytically obtained as a function of temperature, filling factor and the component

We compute the production rate of double occupancy induced by modulation of an optical lattice potential. Furthermore, we extend the analysis to take into account the trapping potential by use of the local density approximation. We find an excellent agreement with recent experiments on ^173Yb atoms.
