20 One-particle Green s function The one-particle Green s function G Definition and meaning of G: ig(x 1, t 1 ; x 2, t 2 ) = N T [ ψ(x 1, t 1 )ψ (x 2, t 2 ) ] N for for t 1 > t 2 ig(x 1, t 1 ; x 2, t 2 ) = N ψ(x 1, t 1 )ψ (x 2, t 2 ) N t 1 < t 2 ig(x 1, t 1 ; x 2, t 2 ) = N ψ (x 2, t 2 )ψ(x 1, t 1 ) N

21 One-particle Green s function t 1 > t 2 N ψ(x 1, t 1 )ψ (x 2, t 2 ) N t 1 < t 2 N ψ (x 2, t 2 )ψ(x 1, t 1 ) N

22 One-particle Green s function What is G? Definition and meaning of G: [ ] G(x 1, t 1 ; x 2, t 2 ) = i < N T ψ(x 1, t 1 )ψ (x 2, t 2 ) N > Insert a complete set of N + 1 or N 1-particle states. This yields G(x 1, t 1 ; x 2, t 2 ) = i j f j (x 1 )f j (x 2 )e iε j (t 1 t 2 ) [θ(t 1 t 2 )θ(ε j µ) θ(t 2 t 1 )Θ(µ ε j )]; where: ε j = E(N + 1, j) E(N), ε j > µ E(N) E(N 1, j), ε j < µ f j (x 1 ) = N ψ (x 1) N + 1, j, ε j > µ N 1, j ψ (x 1 ) N, ε j < µ

23 One-particle Green s function What is G? - Fourier transform G(x, x, ω) = j Fourier Transform: f j (x)f j (x ) ω ε j + iηsgn(ε j µ). Spectral function: A(x, x ; ω) = 1 π ImG(x, x ; ω) = j f j (x)f j (x )δ(ω ε j ).

29 Functional approach to the MB problem Equation of motion To determine the 1-particle Green s function: [ ] i h 0 (1) G(1, 2) = δ(1, 2) i t 1 d3v(1, 3)G 2 (1, 3, 2, 3 + ) Do the Fourier transform in frequency space: [ω h 0 ]G(ω) + i vg 2 (ω) = 1 where h 0 = v ext is the independent particle Hamiltonian. The 2-particle Green s function describes the motion of 2 particles.

31 Self-energy Perturbation theory starts from what is known to evaluate what is not known, hoping that the difference is small... Let s say we know G 0 (ω) that corresponds to the Hamiltonian h 0 Everything that is unknown is put in Σ(ω) = G 1 0 (ω) G 1 (ω) This is the definition of the self-energy Thus, [ω h 0 ]G(ω) Σ(ω)G(ω) = 1 to be compared with [ω h 0 ]G(ω) + i vg 2 (ω) = 1

33 One-particle Green s function Trick due to Schwinger (1951): introduce a small external potential U(3), that will be made equal to zero at the end, and calculate the variations of G with respect to U δg(1, 2) δu(3) = G 2 (1, 3; 2, 3) + G(1, 2)G(3, 3).

76 Outline 1 Motivation 2 One-particle Green s functions: GW approximation 3 Two-particle Green s functions: Bethe-Salpeter equation 4 Micro-macro connection

77 Micro-macro connection Observation At long wavelength, external fields are slowly varying over the unit cell: dimension of the unit cell for silicon: 0.5 nm visible radiation 400 nm < λ < 800 nm Total and induced fields are rapidly varying: they include the contribution from electrons in all regions of the cell. Large and irregular fluctuations over the atomic scale.

78 Micro-macro connection Observation One usually measures quantities that vary on a macroscopic scale. When we calculate microscopic quantities we need to average over distances that are large compared to the cell parameter small compared to the wavelength of the external perturbation. The differences between the microscopic fields and the averaged (macroscopic) fields are called the crystal local fields.

79 Suppose that we are able to calculate the microscopic dielectric function ɛ, how do we obtain the macroscopic dielectric function ɛ M that we measure in experiments?

80 Micro-macro connection Fourier transform In a periodic medium, every function V (r, ω) can be represented by the Fourier series V (r, ω) = qg V (q + G, ω)e i(q+g)r or: V (r, ω) = q e iqr G V (q + G, ω)e igr = q e iqr V (q, r, ω) where: V (q, r, ω) = G V (q + G, ω)e igr V (q, r, ω) is periodic with respect to the Bravais lattice and hence is the quantity that one has to average to get the corresponding macroscopic potential V M (q, ω).

81 Micro-macro connection Averages V M (q, ω) = 1 Ω c drv (q, r, ω) V (q, r, ω) = G V (q + G, ω)e igr Therefore: V M (q, ω) = G V (q + G, ω) 1 Ω c dre igr = V (q + 0, ω) The macroscopic average V M corresponds to the G = 0 component of the microscopic V. Example V ext (q, ω) = ɛ M (q, ω)v tot,m (q, ω)

82 Micro-macro connection Averages V M (q, ω) = 1 Ω c drv (q, r, ω) V (q, r, ω) = G V (q + G, ω)e igr Therefore: V M (q, ω) = G V (q + G, ω) 1 Ω c dre igr = V (q + 0, ω) The macroscopic average V M corresponds to the G = 0 component of the microscopic V. Example V ext (q, ω) = ɛ M (q, ω)v tot,m (q, ω)

83 Micro-macro connection Fourier transforms Fourier transform of a function f (r, r, ω): f (q + G, q + G, ω) = drdr e i(q+g)r f (r, r, ω)e +i(q+g )r f G,G (q, ω) Therefore the relation V tot (r 1, ω) = dr 2 ɛ 1 (r 1, r 2, ω)v ext (r 2, ω) in the Fourier space becomes: V tot (q + G, ω) = G ɛ 1 G,G (q, ω)v ext (q + G, ω)

84 Micro-macro connection Fourier transforms Fourier transform of a function f (r, r, ω): f (q + G, q + G, ω) = drdr e i(q+g)r f (r, r, ω)e +i(q+g )r f G,G (q, ω) Therefore the relation V tot (r 1, ω) = dr 2 ɛ 1 (r 1, r 2, ω)v ext (r 2, ω) in the Fourier space becomes: V tot (q + G, ω) = G ɛ 1 G,G (q, ω)v ext (q + G, ω)
