An example of a cubic lattice

The Hubbard model, named after John Hubbard, is a simple model of interacting particles in a lattice, with only two terms in the Hamiltonian (see example below): a kinetic term allowing for tunneling ("hopping") of particles between sites of the lattice and a potential term consisting of an on-site interaction.
