We present a numerical study of the doping dependence of the spectral function of the n-type cuprates. Using cluster-perturbation theory and the self-energy-functional approach, we calculate the spectral function of the Hubbard model with next-nearest neighbor electronic hopping amplitude t′ = −0.35t and on-site interaction U = 8t at half filling and doping levels ranging from x = 0.077 to x = 0.20. We show that a comprehensive description of the single particle spectrum of the electron doped cuprates is only possible within a strongly correlated model. Weak coupling approaches that are based upon a collapse of the Mott gap by vanishing on-site interaction U are ruled out.
