Abstract

The evolution from an anomalous metallic phase to a Mott insulator within the two-dimensional Hubbard model is investigated by means of the cellular dynamical mean-field theory. We show that approaching the density-driven Mott metal-insulator transition the Fermi surface is strongly renormalized and the quasiparticle description breaks down in a very anisotropic fashion. Regions where the quasiparticles are strongly scattered (hot spots) and regions where the scattering rate is relatively weak (cold spot) form irrespective of whether the parent insulator has antiferromagnetic long-range order, while their location is not universal and is determined by the interplay of the renormalization of the scattering rate and the Fermi surface shape.
