Critical Behaviour near the Mott Metal-Insulator Transition in a Two-band Hubbard Model


The Mott metal-insulator transition in the two-band Hubbard model in infinite dimensions is studied by using the linearized dynamical mean-field theory. The discontinuity in the chemical potential for the change from hole to electron doping is calculated analytically as a function of the on-site Coulomb interaction UU at the dd-orbital and the charge-transfer energy Ξ”\Delta between the dd- and pp-orbitals. Critical behaviour of the quasiparticle weight is also obtained analytically as a function of UU and Ξ”\Delta. The analytic results are in good agreement with the numerical results of the exact diagonalization method.Comment: 10 pages, 8 figure
