Influence of Deformation on the Energy Spectrum and the Optical Properties of Fullerene C20 within the Hubbard Model

Theory of Metals


The anticommutative Green’s functions and energy spectra of fullerene C20 with symmetry groups Ih, D5d, and D3d have been obtained in analytical form within the Hubbard model in the mean-field approximation. The methods of group theory have been used to classify energy states and identify allowed transitions in the energy spectra of C20.
