We develop the impurity lattice Monte Carlo formalism for the case of two distinguishable impurities in a bath of polarized fermions. The majority particles are treated as explicit degrees of freedom, while the impurities are described by worldlines. The latter serve as localized auxiliary fields, which affect the majority particles. We apply the method to non-relativistic three-dimensional systems of two impurities and a number of majority particles where both the impurity–impurity interaction and the impurity–majority interaction have zero range. We consider the case of an attractive impurity–majority interaction, and we study the formation and disintegration of bound states as a function of the impurity–impurity interaction strength. We also discuss the potential applications of this formalism to other quantum many-body systems.
