Spectral Density Functional Approach to Electronic Correlations and Magnetism in Crystals

  • A. I. Lichtenstein
  • M. I. Katsnelson
  • G. Kotliar


A novel approach to electronic correlations and magnetism of crystals based on the realistic electronic structure calculations is reviewed. In its simplest form it is a combination of the “local density approximation” (LDA) and the dynamical mean field theory (DMFT) approaches. Using numerically exact QMC solution of effective DMFT multi-orbital quantum-impurity problem, a successful description of the electronic structure and finite temperature magnetism of transition metals has been obtained. We discuss a simplified perturbation LDA+DMFT scheme which combined the T-matrix and fluctuation-exchange approximation (TM-FLEX). We end with a discussion of cluster generalization of the non-local DMFT scheme and its applications to the magnetism and superconductivity of the high-T c superconductors.
