Full text not available from 'Open Access LMU'.


We give a self-contained derivation of the low-energy effective interactions of the SU(N) Hubbard model, a multiflavor generalization of the one-bandHubbard model, by using a generalized Schrieffer-Wolff transformation (SWT). The effective interaction of doublons and holons, which has been largely ignored in previous SWT studies (e.g., the t - J model), leads to distinct peaks in the local density of states. As shown by Lee et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 119, 236402 (2017)], this underlying effective doublon-holon interaction explains the numerical observation of the subpeaks at the inner edges of the Hubbard bands in the metallic phase close to the Mott transition.
