  18. Results and discussion Reflection different transitions

  19. Consistent with John Teller distortion More distortion non-symmetry symmetry

  20. Charge gaps are depressed by U

  21. Charge gap fluctuation The competition between HV and HU

  22. Conclusions • Substituting experimental critical transition temperatures of TCOs and TNs to charge-charge and spin-spin susceptibility functions offer the determination of the inter-Coulomb repulsions and charge gaps for x > 0.5, respectively. • These Inter-Coulomb repulsions increase with x increasing but not in linear. • In small on-site repulsion U the phase transitions only occur pare-insulator to charge-ordering transitions and in large U only occur para-insulator to antiferromagnetic transitions. The consequential phase transitions for para-insulator to charge-ordering following charge-ordering to antiferromagnetic transitions occur in a moderate U. In charge ordering states the charge gaps are opened and are depressed by U. • The scale of the charge gap increases linearly with x increasing excluding a small range of deviation. This deviation comes from the charge gap fluctuation according to the competition between inter-Coulomb and on-site Coulomb interactions.
