Abstract

Fermi-edge singularity changes in a nonequilibrium system, acquiring features that reflect the structure of energy distribution. In particular, it splits into several components if the energy distribution exhibits multiple steps. While conventional approaches, such as bosonization, fail to describe the nonequilibrium problem, an exact solution for a generic energy distribution can be obtained with the help of the method of functional determinants. In the case of a split Fermi distribution, the "open loop" part of the Greens function possesses power law singularities. At the same time, the resulting tunneling density of states exhibits broadened peaks centered at Fermi sublevels.
