We propose a description of nonequilibrium systems via a simple protocol that combines exchangecorrelation potentials from density functional theory with self-energies of many-body perturbation theory. The approach, aimed to avoid double counting of interactions, is tested against exact results in Hubbardtype systems, with respect to interaction strength, perturbation speed and inhomogeneity, and system dimensionality and size. In many regimes, we find significant improvement over adiabatic time dependent density functional theory or second Born nonequilibrium Green’s function approximations. We briefly discuss the reasons for the residual discrepancies, and directions for future work.

Developments in many-body theory of quantum transport and spectroscopy with non-equilibrium Green's functions and time-dependent density functional theory Uimonen, Anna-Maija (University of Jyväskylä, 2015)The problem of quantum dynamics in open systems has gained attention in recent decades and not the least due to the advances made in quantum transport in molecular systems. The main motivation behind quantum transport ...
Application of time-dependent many-body perturbation theory to excitation spectra of selected finite model systems Säkkinen, Niko (University of Jyväskylä, 2016)In this thesis, an approximate method introduced to solve time-dependent many-body problems known as time-dependent many-body perturbation theory is studied. Many-body perturbation theory for interacting electrons and ...
Existence, uniqueness, and construction of the density-potential mapping in time-dependent density-functional theory Ruggenthaler, Michael; Penz, Markus; van Leeuwen, Robert (Institute of Physics Publishing Ltd.; Institute of Physics, 2015)In this work we review the mapping from densities to potentials in quantum mechanics, which is the basic building block of time-dependent density-functional theory and the Kohn–Sham construction. We first present detailed ...
Towards nonlocal density functionals by explicit modelling of the exchange-correlation hole in inhomogeneous systems Giesbertz, Klaas; van Leeuwen, Robert; von Barth, U. (American Physical Society, 2013)We put forward an approach for the development of a nonlocal density functional by a direct modeling of the shape of exchange-correlation (xc) hole in inhomogeneous systems. The functional is aimed at giving an accurate ...
Lynn, Richard; van Leeuwen, Robert (Institute of Physics Publishing Ltd., 2016)We present an ongoing development of an existing code for calculating groundstate, steady-state, and transient properties of many-particle systems. The development involves the addition of the full four-index two electron ...
