Alternative functional renormalization group approach to the single impurity Anderson model
Physical Review B
We present an alternative functional renormalization group (fRG) approach to the single-impurity Anderson model at finite temperatures. Starting with the exact self-energy and interaction vertex of a small system ('core') containing a correlated site, we switch on the hybridization with a non-interacting bath in the fRG-flow and calculate spectra of the correlated site. Different truncations of the RG-flow-equations and choices of the core are compared and discussed. Furthermore we calculate
... linear conductance and the magnetic susceptibility as functions of temperature and interaction strength. The signatures of Kondo physics arising in the flow are compared with numerical renormalization group results.
