Density matrix plot

An intuitive way to look at eigenstates is to plot the charge density. For multi-electron wave-functions one can not plot the wave-function (it depends on $3\times n$ coordinates) but the charge density is a well defined simple quantity. We here use the rendering options of \textit{Mathematica} in combination with the package for \textit{Mathematica} (Quanty.nb) to plot the density matrix of the lowest three eigenstates in NiO.

-- It is often nice to make plots of the resulting "wave-functions" Now one can not
-- simply plot a multi-electron wavefunction \psi(r_1,r_2,r_3, ..., r_n) as it depends
-- on 3n coordinates.
-- One can plot the resulting charge density.
 
-- This example calculates the density matrix of a state and then calls Mathematica to
-- make a density plot of this matrix.
 
-- the script for mathematica is included in the input file
-- the input string needs calculated data which will be substituted before calling mathematica
 
-- You need to change the absolute path in the script below

--  8 eL + (n+2) ed + (n+1)(n+2) U/2 == 2*Delta+U
-- 3 equations with 2 unknowns, but with interdependence yield:

-- note that ed-ep = Delta - nd * U and not Delta
-- note furthermore that ep and ed here are defined for the onsite energy if the system had
-- locally nd electrons in the d-shell. In DFT or Hartree Fock the d occupation is in the end not
-- nd and thus the onsite energy of the Kohn-Sham orbitals is not equal to ep and ed in model
-- calculations.

-- note furthermore that ep and eL actually should be different for most systems. We happily ignore this fact

Hole density of the $3d$ Ni orbitals in NiO

The plots can be seen in Fig. \ref{figNiODensityMatrix}. We show the hole density (identity matrix minus the density matrix) which has lobes towards the O atoms. Ni in NiO has a hole in the $x^2-y^2$ and in the $z^2$ orbital. The color represent the spin down, $S_z=0$ and spin up state of the lowest triplet.
