Zásady pro vypracování
The problem will be formulated in terms of a multiple-impurity Anderson model.
An approximate solution of the strongly-correlated problem may be formulated in terms of a slave-boson mean-field theory.
The latter will be implemented and solved numerically.
The local spectral function and its (k-space) Fourier transform will be the principal descriptors of the onset of the heavy-fermion behavior.
Optionally, one could simulate the local spectral function of surface electrons in order to compare with the experimental results of the scanning-tunneling microscopy.

Předběžná náplň práce v anglickém jazyce
When a magnetic moment is embedded in a metallic (free-electron) environment, spin-fluctuations give rise to a Kondo effect: excitations at low temperatures are free-fermion like and the magnetic moment is quenched. Similarly, a lattice of magnetic moments (plus the metallic environment) can lead to a heavy-fermion behavior, characterized by a new (heavy) electron band and suppression of magnetism.

In this project we want to study theoretically the evolution from the single-moment Kondo effect to a multiple-moment lattice (spin chains) and investigate the onset of heavy-fermion phenomenology as the chain length increases.
This study is inspired by a collaboration with an experimental group at the University of Zaragoza (David Serrate) (scanning-tunneling microscopy of atomic spin-chains on a metallic surface).
