Abstract

The nonequilibrium spectral properties of the Anderson impurity model with a chemical potential bias are investigated within a numerically exact real-time quantum Monte Carlo formalism. The two-time correlation function is computed in a form suitable for nonequilibrium dynamical mean field calculations. Additionally, the evolution of the model's spectral properties are simulated in an alternative representation, defined by a hypothetical but experimentally realizable weakly coupled auxiliary lead. The voltage splitting of the Kondo peak is confirmed and the dynamics of its formation after a coupling or gate quench are studied. This representation is shown to contain additional information about the dot's population dynamics. Further, we show that the voltage-dependent differential conductance gives a reasonable qualitative estimate of the equilibrium spectral function, but significant qualitative differences are found including incorrect trends and spurious temperature dependent effects.
