Abstract

The generalized Hubbard model is an important theoretical model for modeling strongly correlated materials. To be able to theoretically predict the properties of the materials, the model requires Hubbard's U and Hund's J parameter that represent the on-site Coulomb and exchange interaction, respectively. For bare Coulomb interactions, the analytic expression of U and J are analytically described by Racah's A,B,C parameters. However, the values of U are too large for transition-metal-based materials. To obtain more accurate values for realistic materials, we employ a Yukawa-type screened Coulomb interaction, characterized by screening constant λ. We characterize λ for transition metals. The modified A,B,C parameters give a more realistic U and J values.
