We solve the single-impurity Anderson model in a magnetic field and
out of equilibrium with an auxiliary master equation approach [1,2].
Employing Matrix Product States techniques to solve the many-body
Lindblad equation allows us to generate highly accurate results, espe-
cially for the spectral functions. In equilibrium we find a remarkable
agreement with spectral functions obtained with NRG, cf. [2].
The application of a bias voltage V and a magnetic field B both indi-
vidually result in a splitting of the Kondo resonance around the Kondo
temperature. With our method we can resolve a four-peak structure
in the spectral function for nonzero B and V, due to both effects.
This four-peak structure manifests itself in the differential conduc-
tance, which is very well accessible by experiments.
We investigate the stationary properties of the system as well as its
dynamics after a quantum quench. We finally compare our results to
recent experiments [3] and draw conclusions about the underlying spec-
tral functions. We find that our results nicely agree with experimental
data also outside the Kondo regime.
