Seminar Analysis and Theoretical Physics

Talk on Tuesday, June 13, 2023, at 3 p.m., room c311, main building of the university; Prof. Dr. Volker Bach, TU Braunschweig; Hartree-Fock Theory and its Generaliziations

Hartree-Fock Theory and its Generalizations

In the talk the Hartree-Fock (HF) approximation in quantum mechanics will be reviewed. The following particular aspects will be discussed:
  - Accuracy of the HF approximation,
Lieb's variational principle and its generalizations,
  - generalized HF approximation,
  - symmetries and restricted HF approximation
