We present a functional renormalization group approach to the zero bias transport properties of a quantum dot with two different orbitals and in the presence of Hund's coupling. Tuning the energy separation of the orbital states, the quantum dot can be driven through a singlet-triplet transition. Our approach, based on the approach by Karrasch et al (2006 Phys. Rev. B 73 235337), which we apply to spin-dependent interactions, recovers the key characteristics of the quantum dot transport…

Functional renormalization group approach to transport through correlated quantum dots
We investigate the effect of local Coulomb correlations on electronic transport through a variety of coupled quantum dot systems connected to Fermi liquid leads. We use a newly developed functional
Quantum phase transition in a multilevel dot.
TLDR
By applying the numerical renormalization group, rigorous results are obtained for the linear conductance and the density of states for electronic transport through a lateral quantum dot close to the singlet-triplet degeneracy in the case of a single conduction channel per lead.
Tunneling through a quantum dot in local spin singlet-triplet crossover region with Kondo effect.
Tunneling conductance through a quantum dot is calculated around the local spin singlet-triplet crossover region including the Kondo effect. The calculation is carried out using the numerical
Transport through correlated quantum dots using the functional renormalization group
Calculations using the (exact) fermionic functional renormalization group are usually truncated at the second order of the corresponding hierarchy of coupled ordinary differential equations. We

We review recent theoretical studies on the Kondo effect in tunneling through quantum dots. The calculation is carried out using the numerical renormalization group method. It is shown that two
A functional renormalization group approach to the Anderson impurity model.
TLDR
A functional renormalization group approach which describes the low-energy single-particle properties of the Anderson impurity model up to intermediate on-site interactions and shows that a decoupling which manifestly respects the spin-rotational invariance of the problem gives rise to the lowest quasiparticle weight.
Numerical renormalization group method for quantum impurity systems
In the early 1970s, Wilson developed the concept of a fully nonperturbative renormalization group transformation. When applied to the Kondo problem, this numerical renormalization group (NRG) method

Singlet-triplet transition in a lateral quantum dot
We study transport through a lateral quantum dot in the vicinity of the singlet-triplet transition in its ground state. This transition, being sharp in an isolated dot, is broadened to a crossover by
