The Mott metal-insulator transition is known to be a first order transition, with the transition line terminating in a classical critical end point at finite temperature Tc. Recent numerical studies of the half-filled Hubbard model, which employed dynamical mean-field theory and a quantum Monte Carlo impurity solver, and experiments in 2d organic salts have concordantly observed apparent quantum critical scaling of the resistivity in the regime T>Tc [1,2]. Although this conventionally indicates a nearby quantum critical point at T=0, the studied system shows only a classical first order transition at T=0. So far no theoretical explanation was able to identify the degrees of freedom which behave as if they were quantum critical, and why. To understand this unexpected scaling regime, we study the system with dynamical mean-field theory in combination with the numerical renormalization group.
