Hi, all.
When I try
auto sites =Hubbard(N,{"ConserveSz",false,"ConserveNf",false});
, it shows following error:
One of ConserveSz or ConserveNf must be true for Hubbard sites
It seems there's no such physical constraint in Hubbard sites.
Why couldn't I set that there's no QN conserve?

Hi Victor,

If you don't want any QNs conserved, you should be able to use:

    auto sites = Hubbard(N,{"ConserveQNs=",false})

ConserveQNs=true by default, so unless you turn it off explicitly, the system will expect some sort of QN to be conserved. That is why you are getting the error when you turn off both ConserveSz and ConserveNf. I agree it is a bit confusing, perhaps what you tried should have the same result as ConserveQNs=false (I think one reason to not do that is if we add other kinds of symmetry, like fermion parity conservation, then Hubbard(N,{"ConserveSz",false,"ConserveNf",false}) could be taken to mean that parity is conserved).

Hi, Matt.
It works. Thank you.

Formatting Tips:
  • To format code, indent by four spaces
  • To format inline LaTeX, surround it by @@ on both sides
  • To format LaTeX on its own line, surround it by $$ above and below
  • For LaTeX, it may be necessary to backslash-escape underscore characters to obtain proper formatting. So for example writing \sum\_i to represent a sum over i.
