Abstract

The T=0 phase diagram for two Hubbard chains with interchain hopping t and on-site repulsion U is derived within a renormalization-group (RG) approach. We explicitly allow for renormalization of the Fermi momenta. A nonzero t drives the chains towards strong coupling, and only for large t is a Luttinger liquid recovered. By use of weak-coupling RG, a qualitative picture of the phase diagram can be obtained. Our calculations show two different strong-coupling regimes: one with nonvanishing effective interchain hopping (t0), not confining, for small U, and another with t=0, confining, for large U. Numerical diagonalizations for a small cluster support the RG results. © 1992 The American Physical Society.
