We use the numerical renormalization group method to study an Anderson impurity in a conduction band with the density of states varying as with r > 0. We find two different fixed points: a local-moment fixed point with the impurity effectively decoupled from the band and a strong-coupling fixed point with a partially screened impurity spin. The specific heat and the spin susceptibility show power-law behaviour with different exponents in the strong-coupling and local-moment regimes. We also… 
Numerical renormalization group calculations for the self-energy of the impurity Anderson model
We present a new method for calculating directly the one-particle self-energy of an impurity Anderson model with Wilson's numerical renormalization group method by writing this quantity as the ratio
Upper critical dimension in a quantum impurity model:Critical theory of the asymmetric pseudogap Kondo problem
Impurity moments coupled to fermions with a pseudogap density of states display a quantum phase transition between a screened and a free moment phase upon variation of the Kondo coupling. We describe
A local moment approach to magnetic impurities in gapless Fermi systems
A local moment approach is developed for single-particle excitations of a symmetric Anderson impurity model (AIM) with a soft-gap hybridization vanishing at the Fermi level: I | |r , with r >0. Local
Effective low-energy description of the two-impurity Anderson model: RKKY interaction and quantum criticality
We show that the RKKY interaction in the two-impurity Anderson model comprise two contributions: a ferromagnetic part stemming from the symmetrized hybridization functions and an anti-ferromagnetic
In recent years the numerical renormalization group (NRG) method has been extended to the calculation of dynamic response functions and transport properties of magnetic impurity models. The approach
Transport Properties of Heavy Fermion Systems
Heavy fermion systems (HFS) are described by the periodic Anderson model (PAM), which is studied within the dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT), mapping the PAM on an effective single-impurity
Critical quasiparticles in single-impurity and lattice Kondo models
Quantum criticality in systems of local moments interacting with itinerant electrons has become an important and diverse field of research. Here we review recent results which concern (a) quantum
Kondo screening cloud in a one-dimensional wire: Numerical renormalization group study
We study the Kondo model --a magnetic impurity coupled to a one dimensional wire via exchange coupling-- by using Wilson's numerical renormalization group (NRG) technique. By applying an approach
Numerical Renormalization Group for Impurity Quantum Phase Transitions: Structure of Critical Fixed Points
The numerical renormalization group method is used to investigate zero-temperature phase transitions in quantum impurity systems, in particular in the particle–hole symmetric soft-gap Anderson model.


Phase transitions in gapless Fermi systems with magnetic impurities.
Renormalization-group arguments and a large-degeneracy technique are used to demonstrate that this model has a nontrivial zero-temperature phase transition at a finite coupling constant, in contrast to the zero-coupling-constant transition of the ordinary Kondo model.
Stabilization of local moments in gapless Fermi systems.
Renormalization-group methods are applied to the Anderson model for a localized level coupled to a Fermi system in which the density of states varies like r, thereby narrowing the range of parameters within which the impurity spin becomes Kondo screened.
The Kondo effect in pseudo-gap Fermi systems: a renormalization group study
We present a Wilson renormalization group study of the Kondo problem in a pseudo-gap Fermi system with density of states rho ( epsilon - epsilon F)=C mod epsilon - epsilon F mod r. For initial
Functional integral approach to the single impurity Anderson model
Recently, a functional integral representation was proposed by Weller [1], in which the fermionic fields strictly satisfy the constraint of no double occupancy at each lattice site. This is achieved
