## Abstract

We study the interaction induced zero temperature metal-insulator transition of the Holstein model at half-filling employing the dynamical mean-field theory in combination with Wilson's numerical renormalization group. We calculate the transitions between the insulating and metallic states as coupling constant g and the bare phonon frequency ω_{0} are varied. For the electron-phonon coupling g smaller than the critical value g_{c 1} the ground state is a metallic state, and for g > g_{c 2} it is the bipolaron insulating state. Between g_{c 1} < g < g_{c 2} the metallic and insulating solutions coexist. The dependence of g_{c 1} and g_{c 2} on ω_{0} are computed. The numerical results may be understood in terms of the metal-insulator transition of repulsive Hubbard model and the band narrowing of small polaron physics.
