Electron doping and superconductivity in the two-dimensional Hubbard model

Eichenberger, David ; Baeriswyl, Dionys

An elaborate variational wave function is used for studying superconductivity in the (repulsive) two-dimensional Hubbard model, including both nearest- and next-nearest-neighbor hoppings. A marked asymmetry is found between the “localized” hole-doped region and the more itinerant electron-doped region.

    Summary
    An elaborate variational wave function is used for studying superconductivity in the (repulsive) two-dimensional Hubbard model, including both nearest- and next-nearest-neighbor hoppings. A marked asymmetry is found between the “localized” hole-doped region and the more itinerant electron-doped region. Superconductivity with d-wave symmetry turns out to be restricted to densities where the Fermi surface crosses the magnetic zone boundary. A concomitant peak in the magnetic structure factor at (π,π) clearly points to a magnetic mechanism.
