ABSTRACT Effects of the interladder one-particle hopping, $t_{\perp}$, on the low-energy asymptotics of a weakly coupled Hubbard ladder system have been studied, based on the perturbative renormalization-group approach. We found that for finite intraladder Hubbard repulsion, $U$, there exists a crossover value of the interladder one-particle hopping, $t_{\perp c}$. For $0<t_{\perp}<t_{\perp c}$, the spin gap metal (SGM) phase of the isolated ladder transits at a finite transition temperature, $T_{c}$, to the d-wave superconducting (SCd) phase via a two-particle crossover. In the temperature region, $T<T_{c}$, interladder coherent Josephson tunneling of the Cooper pairs occurs, while the interladder coherent one-particle process is strongly suppressed. For $t_{\perp c}<t_{\perp}$, around a crossover temperature, $T_{cross}$, the system crosses over to the two-dimensional (2D) phase via a one-particle crossover. In the temperature region, $T<T_{cross}$, the interladdercoherent band motion occurs. Comment: 4 pages, 5 eps figures, uses jpsj.sty

    ABSTRACT: We investigatethe two-chain Hubbard model including the next nearest-neighbor transfer energies both in the interchain and intrachain directions by use ofthe exact-diagonalization and the variational Monte Carlo methods. We find that superconducting correlation functions are enhanced in such a situation where the density of states of the antibonding band in the neighborhood of the Fermi levelenlarges due to the above-mentioned transfer energies, especially, in the situation where the Fermi levelis located a little above the bottom of the antibonding band. In such a situationwe find from the calculated momentum distribution function that this system isin almost one-band situation close to the two-band one. The relevance toladder-type superconductor Sr14-xCaxCu24O41 is asserted.

    ABSTRACT: We study dimensionality effects on the charge gap in the dimerized Hubbard model at quarter filling, with two approaches.First, we examine three chains coupled via the interchain one-particle hopping integral tb,by the density-matrix renormalization-group (DMRG) method.Next, we consider the d=1+ε dimensional model, using the perturbative renormalization-group (PRG) method.The dimensionality is controlled through tb and ε, respectively.Both approaches lead to the conclusion that,for a finite dimerization ratio, the charge gap decreases as the dimensionality increases.

    ABSTRACT: We study the electronic states of the two-dimensional frustrated coupled ladder (trellis lattice) Hubbard model, which is a theoretical model of the superconducting material Sr14-xCaxCu24O41. Temperature dependence of the density of states and magnetic susceptibility are discussed by using the fluctuation exchange method, which is applied to this model for the first time. At half filling, a large pseudogap appears in the density of states at higher temperatures. Moreover, the d-wave superconductivity appears at lower temperatures, where the pseudogap is well developed. These behaviors have similarities to the under-doped high- Tc cuprates.
