Abstract

This thesis addresses the question of a strongly interacting many-body problem: the Hubbard model on one- and two-dimensional lattices. The technique employed is the small-cluster method wherein the full many-body Hamiltonian for finite clusters with periodic boundary conditions (PBC's) is solved exactly. We first apply this technique to an extended one-dimensional chain and a two-dimensional square-lattice Hubbard model. We then construct a two-dimensional overlayer/substrate Hubbard model with first- and second-nearest-neighbor hopping, on-site and nearest-neighbor interactions, and overlayer-site orbital energy. The ground-state properties are investigated and discussed in a many-body picture.
