We present a systematic study of vertex corrections in a homogeneous electron gas at metallic densities. The vertex diagrams are built using a recently proposed positive-definite diagrammatic expansion for the spectral function. The vertex function not only provides corrections to the well known plasmon and particle-hole scatterings, but also gives rise to new physical processes such as the generation of two plasmon excitations or the decay of the one-particle state into a two-particle–one-hole state. By an efficient Monte Carlo momentum integration we are able to show that the additional scattering channels are responsible for a reduction of the bandwidth, the appearance of a secondary plasmon satellite below the Fermi level, and a substantial redistribution of spectral weights. The feasibility of the approach for first-principles band-structure calculations is also discussed.

Diagrammatic expansion for positive spectral functions beyond GW : Application to vertex corrections in the electron gas Stefanucci, G.; Pavlyukh, Y.; Uimonen, Anna-Maija; van Leeuwen, Robert (American Physical Society, 2014)[Abstract.] We present a diagrammatic approach to construct self-energy approximations within many-body perturbation theory with positive spectral properties. The method cures the problem of negative spectral functions ...
Second-forbidden nonunique β− decays of 59,60Fe:possible candidates for gA sensitive electron spectral-shape measurements Kumar, Anil; Srivastava, Praveen, C.; Suhonen, Jouni (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2021)In this work, we present a theoretical study of the electron spectral shapes for the second-forbidden nonunique β−-decay transitions 59Fe(3/2−)→59Co(7/2−) and 60Fe(0+)→60Co(2+) in the framework of the nuclear shell model. ...
Polarization corrections to single-particle energies studied within the energy-density-functional and quasiparticle random-phase approximation approaches Tarpanov, D.; Toivanen, Jussi; Dobaczewski, Jacek; Carlsson, B. G. (American Physical Society, 2014)Background: Models based on using perturbative polarization corrections and mean-field blocking approxima- tion give conflicting results for masses of odd nuclei. Purpose: We systematically investigate the polarization ...
Hänninen, Henri; Lappi, Tuomas; Paatelainen, Risto (Elsevier Inc., 2018)We develop methods to perform loop calculations in light cone perturbation theory using a helicity basis, refining the method introduced in our earlier work. In particular this includes implementing a consistent way to ...
