The hartree-fock theory for coulomb systems

Elliott H. Lieb, Barry Simon

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


For neutral atoms and molecules and positive ions and radicals, we prove the existence of solutions of the Hartree-Fock equations which minimize the Hartree-Fock energy. We establish some properties of the solutions including exponential falloff.
