The exact ground state of four electrons in an arbitrary large two leg Hubbard ladder is deduced from nine analytic and explicit linear equations. The used procedure is described, and the properties of the ground state are analyzed. The method is based on the construction in r-space of the different type of orthogonal basis wave vectors which span the subspace of the Hilbert space containing the ground state. In order to do this, we start from the possible microconfigurations of the four particles within the system. These microconfigurations are then rotated, translated and spin-reversed in order to build up the basis vectors of the problem. A closed system of nine analytic linear equations is obtained whose secular equation, by its minimum energy solution, provides the ground state energy and the ground state wave function of the model.

    ABSTRACT: The Hubbard model for small size clusters is investigated. Using direct diagonalization of the small cluster Hamiltonian, electronic, magnetic and spin susceptibilities are calculated and their behavior at low temperature is investigated. The temperature behavior of susceptibilities for two- and three-site clusters is investigated for both center and edge of the Brillouin zone. If at the given concentration the ground state is polarized, the susceptibilities diverge following the Curie law and the system is transformed into the magnetically ordered state at $T=0$.

    ABSTRACT: Quadratic operators are used in transforming the model Hamiltonian of one correlated and dispersive band in a unique positive semidefinite form coopting both the kinetic and interacting parts of the . The expression is used in deducing exact ground states which are minimum energy eigenstates only of the full Hamiltonian. It is shown in this framework that at half-filling, dispersive bands can also provide ferromagnetism in exact terms through correlation effects.

    ABSTRACT: An exact analytical diagonalization is used to solve the two dimensional Extended Hubbard Model for system with finite size. We have considered an Extended Hubbard Model (EHM) including on-site and off-site interactions with interaction energy U and V respectively, for square lattice containing 4*4 sites at one-eighth filling with periodic boundary conditions, recently treated by Kovacs et al [1]. Taking into account the symmetry properties of this square lattice and using a translation linear operator, we have constructed a r-space basis, only, with 85 state-vectors which describe all possible distributions for four electrons in the 4*4 square lattice. The diagonalization of the 85*85 matrix energy allows us to study the local properties of the above system as function of the on-site and off-site interactions energies, where, we have shown that the off-site interaction encourages the existence of the double occupancies at the first exited state and induces supplementary conductivity of the system.
