We discuss the theory and implementation of the finite temperature coupled cluster singles and doubles (FT-CCSD) method including the equations necessary for an efficient implementation of response properties. Numerical aspects of the method including the truncation of the orbital space and integration of the amplitude equations are tested on some simple systems, and we provide some guidelines for applying the method in practice. The method is then applied to the 1D Hubbard model, the uniform…

Dynamical correlation energy of metals in large basis sets from downfolding and composite approaches.
This work describes how high-energy excitations treated by MP2 can be "downfolded" into a low-energy active space to be treated by CCSD, and test the composite approach with the direct random-phase approximation used in place of MP2, yielding a method that is typically (but not always) more cost effective due to the smaller number of orbitals that need to be included in the more expensive C CSD calculation.
Ab Initio Full Cell GW+DMFT for Correlated Materials
Quantitative prediction of electronic properties in correlated materials requires simulations without empirical truncations and parameters. We present a method to achieve this goal through a new ab
Unveiling the Finite Temperature Physics of Hydrogen Chains via Auxiliary Field Quantum Monte Carlo.
This work generalizes the previous, exact fully ab initio finite temperature Auxiliary Field Quantum Monte Carlo method to model periodic solids and employing it to uncover the finite temperature physics of periodic hydrogen chains, and identifies signatures of the Pomeranchuk effect in hydrogen chains for the first time.
Interpretation of Coupled-Cluster Many-Electron Dynamics in Terms of Stationary States
It is demonstrated theoretically and numerically that laser-driven many-electron dynamics, as described by bivariational time-dependent coupled-cluster (CC) theory, may be analyzed in terms of stationary-state populations and the equation-of-motion projector emerges as the most promising approach to stationary- state populations.
Finite temperature auxiliary field quantum Monte Carlo in the canonical ensemble.
The novel use of HS-transformed operators to implement algorithms originally derived for non-interacting systems will motivate the development of a variety of other methods and anticipate that the technique will enable direct performance comparisons against other many-body approaches formulated in the canonical ensemble.
Coupling electrons and vibrations in molecular quantum chemistry.
The nature of the model Hamiltonian in the harmonic and linear-coupling regime is investigated for pyrazine, where a simple time-dependent calculation including electron-vibration correlation is demonstrated to exhibit the well-studied population transfer between the S2 and S1 excited states.
The Sign Problem in Density Matrix Quantum Monte Carlo
A systematic numerical study of the sign problem in DMQMC based on simulations of atomic and molecular systems and finds that IP-DMQMC offers a way to ameliorate the cost of moving between a Slater determinant space and an outer product basis.
A phaseless auxiliary-field quantum Monte Carlo perspective on the uniform electron gas at finite temperatures: Issues, observations, and benchmark study.
It is found that ph-FT-AFQMC exchange-correlation energies are in better agreement with a known parameterization than is restricted path-integral MC in the regime of Θ ≤ 0.5 and rs ≤ 2, which highlights the strength of ph- FT-AFZMC.


Thermofield theory for finite-temperature coupled cluster.
A coupled cluster and linear response theory is presented to compute properties of many-electron systems at non-zero temperatures by parameterizing the so-called thermal state using an exponential ansatz with cluster operators that create thermal quasiparticle excitations on a mean-field reference.

Here, the arising imaginary time dependent coupled cluster amplitude integral equations are solved in the linearized direct ring doubles approximation, also referred to as Tamm-Dancoff approximation with second order (linearized) screened exchange.
Real-time density-matrix coupled-cluster approach for closed and open systems at finite temperature.
The coupled-cluster method is extended to correlated quantum dynamics of both closed and open systems at finite temperatures using the thermofield formalism and developed in a thermal quasiparticle representation, which allows seamless connection to the projection method and diagrammatic techniques of the traditional coupled-Cluster formalism.
