Abstract

The Mott - Hubbard metal - insulator transition in the half-filled mass imbalanced ionic Hubbard model is investigated using the two-site dynamical mean field theory. We find that for a fixed mass imbalanced parameter r the critical interaction Uc increases when the ionic energy \(\Delta\) is increased. In the other hand, for a fixed \(\Delta\), \(U_c\) decreases with increasing the mass imbalance. We also show the existence of BI phase in the system for the case \(\Delta \ne 0\), \(U=0\) and calculate the staggered charge density \(n_B − n_A\) as a function of the interaction for different values of the mass imbalance. Our results in the limiting cases (\(r = 1\); \(\Delta \ne 0\) or/and \(\Delta = 0\); \(r\ne 1\)) are in good agreement with those obtained from full dynamical mean field theory.
