Adiabatic preparation of a correlated symmetry‐broken initial state with the generalized Kadanoff–Baym Ansatz
http://doc.rero.ch/record/327014/files/wer_apc.pdf
A fast time propagation method for nonequilibrium Green's functions (NEGF) based on the generalized Kadanoff–Baym Ansatz (GKBA) is applied to a lattice system with a symmetry‐broken equilibrium phase, namely an excitonic insulator (EI). The adiabatic preparation of a correlated symmetry‐broken initial state from a Hartree– Fock wave function within GKBA is assessed by comparing with a solution of the imaginary‐time Dyson equation. It is found that it is possible to reach a symmetry‐ broken correlated initial state with nonzero excitonic order parameter by the adiabatic switching (AS) procedure. It is discussed under which circumstances this is possible in practice within reasonably short switching times.
