Induced Charge Generated By The Potential Well In Transition Metal Dichalcogenides

To calculate the asymptotics we find the convenient integral representation for the Green's function $G(\bm r,\bm r'|\epsilon)$ of the quasiparticle in the external field, represent the density in the form
$$\rho_{ind}(r)=eN\int_{-\infty}^\infty\frac{d\epsilon}{2\pi}Tr\{G(\bm r,\bm r|i\epsilon)\},$$
then we perform integration, and obtain the following result:
where the function $F(r)$ depends on $r$ and does not depend on the potential, the function $\psi(U_0,R,\lambda)$ depends only on the parameters of the potential well. For the potential well $U(r)=-U_0\theta(R-r)$ we found simple analytical expression for $\psi(U_0,R,\lambda)$. We consider the function $\psi(U_0,R,\lambda)$ and investigate its behavior in the vicinity of the critical value of the potential well depth.
