Discrete Lehmann representation of imaginary time Green's functions

  title={Discrete Lehmann representation of imaginary time Green's functions},
  author={Jason Kaye and Kun Chen and Olivier Parcollet},
We present an efficient basis for imaginary time Green’s functions based on a low rank decomposition of the spectral Lehmann representation. The basis functions are simply a set of well-chosen exponentials, so the corresponding expansion may be thought of as a discrete form of the Lehmann representation using an effective spectral density which is a sum of δ functions. The basis is determined only by an upper bound on the product βωmax, with β the inverse temperature and ωmax an energy cutoff…

This paper determines efficient imaginary time grids for the temperature-dependent Matsubara Green's function formalism that can be used for calculations on realistic systems and shows that only a limited number of orthogonal polynomial expansion coefficients are necessary to preserve accuracy.
Compressing Green's function using intermediate representation between imaginary-time and real-frequency domains
