Original Paper


We present an extension of the recently proposed dual fermion approach to investigate the superconducting properties of the Hubbard model in two dimensions. From the spin–spin susceptibility, we find a reduction of the Néel temperature compared to results from dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT) calculations due to the incorporation of spatial correlations. We present results for the temperature dependence of the leading eigenvalue of the Bethe–Salpeter equation for the particle–particle channel. In agreement with previous studies, we find singlet d-wave pairing to be the dominant contribution to pairing. We further present first results for the finite-doping phase diagram obtained from the leading eigenvalue of the Bethe–Salpeter equations for the particle–hole and particle–particle channels.
