Spin-resolved density response of the warm dense electron gas

Dornheim, T.; Vorberger, J.; Moldabekov, Z.; Tolias, P.


We present extensive new \emph{ab initio} path integral Monte Carlo (PIMC) results for the spin-resolved density response of the uniform electron gas (UEG) at warm dense matter conditions. This allows us to unambiguously assess the accuracy of previous theoretical approximations, thereby providing valuable new insights for the future development of dielectric schemes. From a physical perspective, we observe a nontrivial manifestation of an effective electron--electron attraction that emerges in the spin-offdiagonal static density response function at strong coupling, r_s>5. All PIMC results are freely available online and can be used to benchmark new approximations and simulation schemes.
