Charge Order in the Falicov-Kimball Model
We examine the spinless one-dimensional Falicov-Kimball model (FKM) below half filling, addressing both the binary alloy and valence transition interpretations of the model. Using a nonperturbative technique, we derive an effective Hamiltonian for the occupation of the localized orbitals, providing a comprehensive description of charge order in the FKM. In particular, we uncover the contradictory ordering roles of the forwardscattering and backscattering itinerant electrons: the latter are...[Show more]
