We study the properties of the Luttinger-Ward functional (LWF) in a simplified Hubbard-type model without time or spatial dimensions, but with $N$ identical replicas located on a single site. The simplicity of this $(0+0)d$ model permits an exact solution for all $N$ and for both bosonic and fermionic statistics. We show that fermionic statistics are directly linked to the fact that multiple values of the noninteracting Green function $G_0$ map to the same value of the interacting Green…

Strange Metal Solution in the Diagrammatic Theory for the $2d$ Hubbard Model.
We show that the numerically exact bold-line diagrammatic theory for the $2d$ Hubbard model exhibits a non-Fermi-liquid (NFL) strange metal state, which is connected to the SYK NFL in the

Physical and unphysical regimes of self-consistent many-body perturbation theory
In the standard framework of self-consistent many-body perturbation theory, the skeleton series for the self-energy is truncated at a finite order N and plugged into the Dyson equation, which is then
Causal optimization method for imaginary-time Green's functions in interacting electron systems
A causal optimization method is developed that ensures causality in numerical calculations of Green’s functions in interacting electron systems and finds that intermediate-frequency behaviors of Green's functions are determined solely by causality, and noncausal statistical errors are removed very efficiently.


Nonexistence of the Luttinger-Ward functional and misleading convergence of skeleton diagrammatic series for hubbard-like models.
It is shown that the self-energy Σ[G]∝δΦ [G]/δG is not a single-valued functional of G: in addition to the physical solution for Σ, there exists at least one qualitatively distinct unphysical branch of Σ.
Absence of Luttinger's theorem due to zeros in the single-particle Green function.
We show exactly with an SU(N) interacting model that even if the ambiguity associated with the placement of the chemical potential, μ, for a T=0 gapped system is removed by using the unique value
Effective-action approach to strongly correlated fermion systems
We construct a functional for the single-particle Green's function, which is a variant of the standard Baym-Kadanoff functional. The stability of the stationary solutions to the functional is
Non-perturbative construction of the Luttinger-Ward functional
For a system of correlated electrons, the Luttinger-Ward functional provides a link between static thermodynamic quantities on the one hand and single-particle excitations on the other. The
Breakdown of Traditional Many-Body Theories for Correlated Electrons.
It is argued that there are indeed infinitely many G_{0}, with numerous crossings with the physical solution, and that this rich functional structure is directly related to the divergence of certain classes of (irreducible vertex) diagrams, with important consequences for traditional many-body physics based on diagrammatic expansions.

In this work, we analyze in detail the occurrence of divergences in the irreducible vertex functions for one of the fundamental models of many-body physics: the Anderson impurity model (AIM). These

We review the dynamical mean-field theory of strongly correlated electron systems which is based on a mapping of lattice models onto quantum impurity models subject to a self-consistency condition.
