Abstract

Ground state of the dissipative two-state system is investigated by means of the Lanczos diagonalization method. We adopted the Hilbert-space-reduction scheme proposed by Zhang, Jeckelmann and White so as to reduce the overwhelming reservoir Hubert space to being tractable in computers. Both the implementation of the algorithm and the precision are reported in detail. We evaluate the dynamical susceptibility (resolvent) with the continued-fraction-expansion formula. Through analysing the resolvent over a frequency range, which is often called "interesting" frequency, we obtain the damping rate and the oscillation frequency. Our results agree with those of a recent quantum Monte-Carlo study, which concludes that the critical dissipation from oscillatory to over-damped behavior decreases as the tunneling amplitude is strengthened.
