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 exponentially small. In this article we consider a composite fermion operator, consisting of a conduction electron dressed by spin fluctuations that shares the same quantum numbers as the electron operator. Using approximation free auxiliary field quantum Monte Carlo simulations we show that for the SU… Expand


Many-body band structure and Fermi surface of the Kondo lattice
We present a theory for the single particle excitations and Fermi surface of the Kondo lattice. Thereby we construct an effective Hamiltonian describing the creation and propagation of singleExpand
Low-energy properties of the Kondo lattice model.
Results for the paramagnetic case showing the anticipated heavy-fermion physics, including direct evidence for the appearance of a large Fermi surface for antiferromagnetic exchange interaction, are presented. Expand
Fermi surface topology of the two-dimensional Kondo lattice model: a dynamical cluster approximation approach
We report the results of extensive dynamical cluster approximation calculations, based on a quantum Monte Carlo solver, for the two-dimensional Kondo lattice model. Our particular clusterExpand
Real space manifestations of coherent screening in atomic scale Kondo lattices
One-dimensional lattices of cobalt atoms on a metallic surface are built and the onset of heavy fermion behaviour is observed and explained in terms of the indirect hybridization of the Kondo orbitals mediated by a coherent electron gas. Expand
Luttinger sum rules and spin fractionalization in the SU( N ) Kondo lattice
We show how Oshikawa’s theorem for the Fermi surface volume of the Kondo lattice can be extended to the SU(N) symmetric case. By extending the theorem, we are able to show that the mechanism of FermiExpand
Single-hole dynamics in the half-filled two-dimensional Kondo-Hubbard model
We consider the Kondo lattice model in two dimensions at half filling. In addition to the Fermionic hopping integral t and the superexchange coupling J the role of a Coulomb repulsion U in theExpand
Interplay between charge, magnetic, and superconducting order in a Kondo lattice with attractive Hubbard interaction
We investigate the competition between superconductivity, charge-ordering, magnetic-ordering, and the Kondo effect in a heavy fermion $s$-wave superconductor described by a Kondo lattice model withExpand
Visualizing heavy fermions emerging in a quantum critical Kondo lattice
It is demonstrated that proximity to a quantum critical point results in critical damping of the emergent heavy excitation of the Kondo lattice system. Expand
Coherence scale of the two-dimensional Kondo Lattice model
A doped hole in the two-dimensional half-filled Kondo lattice model with exchange J and hopping t has momentum (pi,pi) irrespective of the coupling J/t. The quasiparticle residue of the doped hole,Expand
Phonons and the coherence scale of models of heavy fermions
We consider models of heavy fermions in the strong coupling or local-moment limit and include phonon degrees of freedom on the conduction electrons. Due to the large mass or low coherence temperatureExpand
