Although the nuclear properties of the late actinides (plutonium, americium and curium) are fully understood and widely applied to energy generation, their solid-state properties do not fit within standard models and are the subject of active research. Plutonium displays phases with enormous volume differences, and both its Pauli-like magnetic(More)
We compute the electronic structure, momentum resolved spectral function and optical conductivity of the new superconductor LaO1-xFxFeAs within the combination of the density functional theory and dynamical mean field theory. We find that the compound in the normal state is a strongly correlated metal and the parent compound is a bad metal at the verge of(More)
We address the fundamental question of crossover from the localized to the itinerant state of a paradigmatic heavy fermion material: CeIrIn5. The temperature evolution of the one-electron spectra and the optical conductivity are predicted from first-principles calculation. The buildup of coherence in the form of a dispersive many-body feature is followed in(More)
We address theoretically the evolution of the heavy fermion Fermi surface (FS) as a function of temperature (T), using a first principles dynamical mean-field theory approach combined with density functional theory. We focus on the archetypical heavy electrons in CeIrIn{5}. Upon cooling, both the quantum oscillation frequencies and cyclotron masses show(More)
We investigate the structural, electronic, and magnetic properties of the hypothetical compound BaFePn 2 ͑Pn = As and Sb͒, which is isostructural to the parent compound of the high-temperature superconductor LaFeAsO 1−x F x. Using density-functional theory, we show that the Fermi surface, electronic structure, and spin-density wave instability of BaFePn 2(More)
The puzzling absence of Pu magnetic moments in a PuAm environment is explored using the self-consistent dynamical mean field theory calculations in combination with the local density approximation. We argue that delta-Pu-Am alloys provide an ideal testbed for investigating the screening of moments from the single impurity limit to the dense limit. Several(More)
