To reduce the rapidly growing computational cost of the dual-fermion lattice calculation with increasing system size, we introduce two embedding schemes. One is the real fermion embedding, and the other is the dual-fermion embedding. Our numerical tests show that the real fermion and dual-fermion embedding approaches converge to essentially the same result. The application on the Anderson disorder and Hubbard models shows that these embedding algorithms converge more quickly with system size as compared to the conventional dual-fermion method, for the calculation of both single- and two-particle quantities. © 2013 American Physical Society.
