Thermal distribution functions and finite-size effects for lattice fermions

Hiroshi Matsuoka, Michael Stone

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We perform, analytically, the sum over the finite set of Matsubara frequencies that arises in the lattice thermodynamics of a free Fermi gas. The resultant expressions provide an easy demonstration that the correction continuum expressions are obtained in the limit of small lattice spacing.
