We develop a discrete fermion approach for modelling the strong interaction of an arbitrary system interacting with continuum electronic reservoirs. The approach is based on a pseudo-fermion decomposition of the continuum bath correlation functions, and is only limited by the accuracy of this decomposition. We show that to obtain this decomposition one can allow for imaginary pseudo-fermion parameters, and strong damping in individual pseudo-fermions, without introducing unwanted approximations…

Fermionic reaction coordinates and their application to an autonomous Maxwell demon in the strong coupling regime

We establish a theoretical method which goes beyond the weak-coupling and Markovian approximations while remaining intuitive, using a quantum master equation in a larger Hilbert space. The method is

Hierarchical Liouville-space approach for accurate and universal characterization of quantum impurity systems.

The outstanding performance on characterizing both equilibrium and nonequilibrium properties of quantum impurity systems makes the hierarchical equations of motion approach potentially useful for addressing strongly correlated lattice systems in the framework of dynamical mean-field theory.

This work establishes formally exact stochastic equation of motion (SEOM) theory to describe the dissipative dynamics of fermionic open systems at ultra-low temperatures and proposes a minimal auxiliary space (MAS) mapping scheme with which the stochastically Grassmann fields are represented by conventional c-number fields along with a set of pseudo-levels.
