We investigate an extended version of the periodic Anderson model where an interaction is switched on between the doubly occupied d- and f-sites. We perform variational calculations using the Gutzwiller trial wave function. We calculate the f-level occupancy as a function of the f-level energy with different interaction strengths. It is shown that the region of valence transition is sharpened due to the new interaction.

The calculation of the effective mass m ∗ in the heavy-fermion regime shows that it becomes large mainly because of the small hybridization of f electrons with the conduction band rather than because of large Coulomb correlations.
