Diagrammatic Monte Carlo (DiagMC) is a recently introduced approach to correlated fermionic systems based on unbiased stochastic summation of Feynman diagrams to high order. I will discuss the new technique and show how DiagMC can be used to address the Hubbard model on the square lattice in the region of moderate on-site repulsion U -which expresses the thermodynamic grand potential in terms of the interacting single-particle Green’s function G--is at least double valued with a distinct unphysical branch. Although, despite this pathology, the skeleton (bold-line) series in terms of G is found to converge (at least at moderate temperatures), at stronger interactions its convergence is to the unphysical branch, which reveals a new scenario of breaking down of diagrammatic expansions.
