|Title:||Thermodynamic properties of the periodic Anderson model: X-boson treatment|
|Abstract:||We study the specific-heat dependence of the periodic Anderson model (PAM) in the limit of U=infinity employing the X-boson treatment in two different regimes of the PAM: the heavy fermion Kondo (HF-K) and the local magnetic moment regime (HF-LMM). We obtain a multiple peak structure for the specific heat in agreement with the experimental results as well as the increase of the electronic effective mass at low temperatures associated with the HF-K regime. The entropy per site at low T tends to zero in the HF-K regime, corresponding to a singlet ground state, and it tends to k(B)ln 2 in the HF-LMM, corresponding to a doublet ground state at each site. The linear coefficient gamma(T)=C-v(T)/T of the specific heat qualitatively agrees with the experimental results obtained for different materials in the two regimes considered here.|
