ABSTRACT We demonstrate that fermion-boson models with nonlocal interactions can be
simulated at finite band filling with the continuous-time quantum Monte Carlo
method. We apply this method to explore the influence of the electron-phonon
interaction range for a half-filled band in one dimension, covering the full
range from the Holstein to the Fr\"ohlich regime. The phase diagram contains
metallic, Peierls, and phase-separated regions, which we characterize in terms
of static and dynamical correlation functions. In particular, our results
reveal a suppression of $2k_F$ charge correlations with increasing interaction
range, allowing for a power-law decay comparable to the pairing correlations.

    ABSTRACT: We study the ground state phase diagram of a one-dimensional hard-core bosonic model with nearest-neighbor interactions (XXZ model) where every site is coupled Ohmically to an independent but identical reservoir, hereby generalizing spin-boson models to interacting spin-boson systems. %The coupling with the bath is taken to be Ohmic ($s=1)$. We show that a bath-induced Bose metal phase can occur in the ground state phase diagram away from half filling. This phase is compressible, gapless, and conducting but not superfluid. At haf-filling, only a Luttinger liquid and a charge density wave are found. The phase transition between them is of Kosterlitz-Thouless type where the Luttinger parameter takes a non-universal value.The applied quantum Monte Carlo method can be used for all open bosonic and unfrustrated spin systems, regardless of their dimension, filling factor and spectrum of the dissipation as long as the quantum system couples to the bath via the density operators.

    ABSTRACT: We analyze the dynamical response of a ultracold binary gas mixture in presence of strong boson-fermion couplings. Mapping the problem onto that of the optical response of a metal/semiconductor electronic degrees of freedom to electromagnetic perturbation we calculate the corresponding dynamic linear response susceptibility in the non-perturbative regimes of strong boson-fermion coupling using diagrammatic resummation technique as well as quantum Monte Carlo simulations. We evaluate the Bragg spectral function as well as the optical conductivity and find a pseudogap, which forms in certain parameter regimes.

    ABSTRACT: We introduce the first bold diagrammatic Monte Carlo approach to deal with polaron problems at finite density non-perturbatively, i.e., by including vertex corrections to high orders. Using Holstein model on a square lattice as a prototypical example, we demonstrate that our method is capable of providing accurate results in the thermodynamic limit in all regimes from renormalized Fermi-liquid to single polarons, across the non-adiabatic region where Fermi and Debye energies are of the same order of magnitude. By accounting for vertex corrections the accuracy of theoretical description is increased by orders of magnitude relative to the lowest-order self-consistent Born approximation employed in most studies. We also find that for electron-phonon coupling typical for real materials, the quasiparticle effective mass increases and the quasiparticle residue decreases with increasing the system density.
