We analyze the ground state properties of Bose-Fermi mixtures using a mean-field treatment of the boson-fermion interaction on a simple cubic lattice. In the deep superfluid limit of the bosonic sector and the BCS regime of the fermion sector, we derive BCS-type equations to determine the phase diagram of the system. We find a competition between a charge density wave and a superconducting phase. In the opposite limit, we study the Mott insulator to superfluid transition of the bosonic sector…

Induced pairing of fermionic impurities in a one-dimensional strongly correlated Bose gas

We investigate numerically the problem of few (one, two) noninteracting spin$-1/2$ fermions in a shallow harmonic trap coupled via contact repulsive interactions to a uniform one-dimensional bath of

Mixture of scalar bosons and two-color fermions in one dimension: Superfluid-insulator transitions

Superfluid-insulator transitions in a one-dimensional mixture of two-color fermions and scalar bosons are studied within the framework of the Bose-Fermi-Hubbard model. Zero-temperature phase diagrams

Insulator phases of a mixture of spinor fermions and hard-core bosons

We study numerically a one-dimensional mixture of spin-$\tfrac{1}{2}$ fermions and scalar bosons in the hard-core limit. Considering repulsive fermion-fermion and boson-fermion interactions, we find

Spin-selective insulators in Bose-Fermi mixtures

We investigate an imbalanced mixture composed of two-color fermions and scalar bosons in the hard-core limit, considering repulsive and attractive interspecies and intraspecies interactions. The

The computation of determinants plays a central role in diagrammatic Monte Carlo algorithms for strongly correlated systems. The evaluation of large numbers of determinants can often be the limiting

Mixtures of Bose and Fermi Superfluids

Manifestations of Quantum Physics at the thermodynamical level are found in a broadrange of physical systems. A famous example is superfluidity, discovered at the beginningof the 20th century and



Bose-Fermi Mixtures: A Mean-Field Study

We study the low-energy properties of the spinful Bose-Fermi Hubbard model on a simple cubic lattice for attractive fermion-fermion and repulsive boson-boson interactions at half-filling for the

At half-filling, however, the phase diagram of the BFM is symmetric w.r.t. the hypersurface U bf = 0. A similar situation occurs in the pure Fermi-Hubbard model

  • Notice that the phases of the BFM will be different for U bf < 0 14
