S39.00008. Machine Learned Spectra for the Quantum Impurity Problem

Presented by: Erica J. Sturm


Machine learning techniques can greatly reduce simulation times by providing highly accurate approximations, thus circumventing the need for more expensive models. This work leverages a feed-forward neural network (NN) to predict the spectral functions of the single impurity Anderson model (SIAM) as a function of five physical parameters including the Coulomb interaction U, hybridization constant Γ, impurity energy εd, magnetic field B, and temperature T. The NN was trained on ~1.45 million unique SIAM system spectral functions generated by Wilson’s Numerical Renormalization Group (NRG). The NN predicts the spectral function with a mean absolute difference of less than 3% compared to the ground truth. The ability to efficiently predict a spectral function for the quantum impurity problem can improve the computation time for dynamical mean field theory and related methods that investigate strong correlation in condensed matter systems.
