Understanding the influence of vibrational degrees of freedom on transport through a heterostructure poses considerable theoretical and numerical challenges. In this work, we use the density-matrix renormalization group (DMRG) method together with local basis optimization (LBO) to study the half-filled Holstein model in the presence of a linear potential, either isolated or coupled to tight-binding leads. In both cases, we observe a decay of charge-density-wave (CDW) states at a sufficiently… Expand

TLDR
QMC studies of the role of phonon dispersion on SC and CDW order in Holstein models are reported and the effect of finite phonon bandwidth and curvature on the critical temperature T_{cdw} forCDW order is quantified. Expand
