The GW plus cumulant method and plasmonic polarons: application to the homogeneous electron gas*

Abstract:

We study the spectral function of the homogeneous electron gas using many-body perturbation theory and the cumulant expansion. We compute the angle-resolved spectral function based on the GW approximation and the “GW plus cumulant” approach. In agreement with previous studies, the GW spectral function exhibits a spurious plasmaron peak at energies 1.5ωpl below the quasiparticle peak, ωpl being the plasma energy. The GW plus cumulant approach, on the other hand, reduces significantly the inten...
