In heavy-fermion systems, the competition between the local Kondo physics and intersite magnetic fluctuations results in unconventional quantum critical phenomena which are frequently addressed within the Kondo lattice model (KLM). Here we study this interplay in the SU($N$) symmetric generalization of the two-dimensional half-filled KLM by quantum Monte Carlo simulations with $N$ up to 8. While the long-range antiferromagnetic (AF) order in SU($N$) quantum spin systems typically gives way to… 

Magnetic quantum phase transition in a metallic Kondo heterostructure

We consider a two-dimensional quantum spin system described by a Heisenberg model that is embedded in a three-dimensional metal. The two systems couple via an antiferromagnetic Kondo interaction. In

Breakdown of heavy quasiparticles in a honeycomb Kondo lattice: A quantum Monte Carlo study

We show that for the half-filled Kondo lattice model on the honeycomb lattice a Kondo breakdown occurs at small Kondo couplings J k within the magnetically ordered phase. This stands in contrast to

Zooming in on heavy fermions in Kondo lattice models

Resolving the heavy fermion band in the conduction electron momentum resolved spectral function of the Kondo lattice model is challenging since, in the weak coupling limit, its spectral weight is

Kondo Breakdown in a Spin-1/2 Chain of Adatoms on a Dirac Semimetal.

The Kondo interaction is irrelevant at the decoupled fixed point, leading to the existence of a Kondo-breakdown phase and aKondo- breakdown critical point separating such a phase from a heavy Fermi liquid.

Continuous ferromagnetic quantum phase transition on an anisotropic Kondo lattice

Motivated by the recent discovery of ferromagnetic quantum criticality in the heavy fermion compound CeRh 6 Ge 4 , we develop a numerical algorithm of infinite projected entangled pair states for the

The ALF (Algorithms for Lattice Fermions) project release 2.0. Documentation for the auxiliary-field quantum Monte Carlo code

The Algorithms for Lattice Fermions package provides a general code for the finite temperature auxiliary field quantum Monte Carlo algorithm and discusses how to use the package to implement the Kondo lattice model and the $SU(N)$-Hubbard-Heisenberg model.

On the sign of fermion-mediated interactions

We develop a unified framework for understanding the sign of fermion-mediated interactions by exploiting the symmetry classification of Green's functions. In particular, we establish a theorem



Possibility of deconfined criticality in SU(N) Heisenberg models at small N

To examine the validity of the scenario of the deconfined critical phenomena, we carry out a quantum Monte Carlo simulation for the SU($N$) generalization of the Heisenberg model with four-body and

Phase diagram of the half-filled two-dimensional SU(N) Hubbard-Heisenberg model : A quantum Monte Carlo study

We investigate the phase diagram of the half-filled $\mathrm{SU}(N)$ Hubbard-Heisenberg model with hopping $t$, exchange $J$, and Hubbard $U$, on a two-dimensional square lattice. In the large-$N$

1 N expansion for the Kondo lattice

A diagrammatic expansion is developed for the partition function of a lattice of spin-$j$ local moments interacting with a band via the Coqblin-Schrieffer exchange interaction. By examining the limit

Dimerized solids and resonating plaquette order in SU(N)-Dirac fermions.

The results support a direct transition between the semimetal and an antiferromagnetic insulator in the SU(2) limit and compare the numerical results to a saddle-point approximation in the large-N limit.

Lattice model for the SU(N) Néel to valence-bond solid quantum phase transition at large N.

It is shown that both order parameters vanish at a single quantum-critical point, whose universal exponents for large enough N (here up to N=12) approach the values obtained in a 1/N expansion of the noncompact CP(N-1) field theory.

Heavy-fermion and spin-liquid behavior in a Kondo lattice with magnetic frustration

We study the competition between the Kondo effect and frustrating exchange interactions in a Kondo-lattice model within a large-${\cal N}$ dynamical mean-field theory. We find a T=0 phase transition

The ground-state phase diagram of the one-dimensional Kondo lattice model

The periodic Anderson and Kondo lattice model describe the physics of conduction electrons in extended orbitals interacting with strongly correlated electrons in localized orbitals. These models are

The observation of a separation between the antiferromagnetic phase boundary and the small-large Fermi surface transition in recent experiments has led to the proposal that frustration is an

The interplay between charge and spin degrees of freedom in strongly correlated fermionic systems, in particular of Dirac fermions, is a long-standing problem in condensed matter physics. We
