Using non-equilibrium Green’s functions combined with many-body perturbation theory, we have calculated steady-state densities and currents through short interacting chains subject to a finite electric bias. By using a steady-state reverse-engineering procedure, the effective potential and bias which reproduce such densities and currents in a non-interacting system have been determined. The role of the effective bias is characterised with the aid of the so-called exchange-correlation bias, recently introduced in a steady-state density-functionaltheory formulation for partitioned systems. We find that the effective bias (or, equivalently, the exchange-correlation bias) depends strongly on the interaction strength and the length of the central (chain) region. Moreover, it is rather sensitive to the level of many-body approximation used. Our study shows the importance of the effective/exchange-correlation bias out of equilibrium, thereby offering hints on how to improve the description of densityfunctional-theory based approaches to quantum transport. ...

Diagrammatic Expansion for Positive Spectral Functions in the Steady-State Limit Hyrkäs, Markku; Karlsson, Daniel; van Leeuwen, Robert (Wiley - VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, 2019)Recently, a method was presented for constructing self‐energies within many‐body perturbation theory that is guaranteed to produce a positive spectral function for equilibrium systems, by representing the self‐energy as a ...
Comparison of the effects of high-intensity interval running, high-intensity interval circuit training and steady-state running on body composition and glucose tolerance in recreationally active adults Kari, Aino (2015)Introduction. The measurement of body composition is important for several reasons, but nowadays when obesity and overweight are common problems all over the world even more attention should be given to body composition. ...

A many-body approach to transport in quantum systems : From the transient regime to the stationary state Ridley, Michael; Talarico, N. Walter; Karlsson, Daniel; Lo Gullo, Nicola; Tuovinen, Riku (IOP Publishing, 2022)We review one of the most versatile theoretical approaches to the study of time-dependent correlated quantum transport in nano-systems: the non-equilibrium Green's function (NEGF) formalism. Within this formalism, one can ...
