# Nonequilibrium self-energy functional theory

@article{Hofmann2013NonequilibriumSF, title={Nonequilibrium self-energy functional theory}, author={Felix Hofmann and Martin Eckstein and Enrico Arrigoni and Michael Potthoff}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2013}, volume={88}, pages={165124} }

The self-energy functional theory (SFT) is generalized to describe the real-time dynamics of correlated lattice-fermion models far from thermal equilibrium. This is achieved by starting from a reformulation of the original equilibrium theory in terms of double-time Green's functions on the Keldysh-Matsubara contour. With the help of a generalized Luttinger-Ward functional, we construct a functional � (� ) which is stationary at the physical (nonequilibrium) self-energyand which yields the grand… Expand
