Absence of highest-spin ground states in the Hubbard model

  • András Sütő


The Hubbard modelH=−tΣc c +U Σnxnx withN electrons and periodic boundary condition is studied onv-dimensionalL1 × ... ×L v lattices. It is shown that for any value ofU there is no ground state with maximal spin (S=N/2) in the following cases: (i) ℤ v (v≧2) at low electron densities; with one hole ift>0 andL i is odd for somei; with two holes ift<0, or ift>0 and all theL i are even. (ii) Thebcc lattice at low densities; with two holes ift<0, or ift>0 and all theL i are even; with 2, ..., 6 holes ifL i =L andt<0, or ift>0 andL is even. (iii) The triangular lattice at densities near 0 and 1 ift>0; with two holes ift<0; with 2, 3, 4 holes ift<0 andL1=L2. (iv) Thefcc lattice at densities near 0 and 1 ift>0; with two holes ift<0. Some results for the one dimensional model are also presented.
