Description We investigate spin-triplet exciton condensation in the two-orbital Hubbard model close to half-filling by means of dynamical mean-field theory. Employing an impurity solver that handles complex off-diagonal hybridization functions, we study the behavior of excitonic condensate in stoichiometric and doped systems subject to external magnetic field. We find a general tendency of the triplet order parameter to lie perpendicular with the applied field and identify exceptions from this rule. For solutions exhibiting k-odd spin textures, we discuss the Bloch theorem, which, in the absence of spin-orbit coupling, forbids the appearance of spontaneous net spin current. We demonstrate that the Bloch theorem is not obeyed by the dynamical mean-field theory.
