All-electronic Peierls instability in the infinite-U mean-field theory for the Hubbard model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

It is shown, for a small hole doping relative to half filling, that the large-U limit of the Hubbard model (or J=0 limit of the t-J model) exhibits an all-electron Peierls instability towards a state with a charge-density wave. The resulting gap in the spinon spectrum renders the model an insulator.
