Self-consistent perturbation theory for dynamics of valence fluctuations

III. Zero-temperature limit
  • Y. Kuramoto

Dynamical properties of valence-fluctuating systems are studied at absolute zero of temperature. The self-consistent perturbation theory developed for rare-earth impurity systems is used with some refinement. The theory takes account of the orthogonality catastrophe caused by hybridization of 4f and conduction electrons. Extensive numerical results are reported for the 4f-electron density of states ϱ4f(ɛ) and the dynamical magnetic susceptibility χ(ω). The results cover both the intermediate-valence and nearly integral-valence regimes of a model Ce impurity system. The present theory gives reasonable overall feature of dynamics including a sharp peak in ϱ4f(ɛ∼0) in the Kondo regime. However, the low-frequency limit of dynamical quantities is not consistent with the Fermi-liquid property. It is shown that interpolation of the present results and those by the Fermi-liquid theory is possible. Hence accurate dynamical information is obtained over a wide excitation-frequency range.
