Project Details


Recently, it has been proved by various authors in a number of works of
increasing generality, that the Hartree-Fock minimizer (which was proved to
exists by B. Simon and E.H. Lieb) is never a Slater-determinant.

In this project we aim to prove the same statement in the setting of so-called
'pseudorelativistic' atoms (the kinetic energy of the electrons is given by the
squareroot of p2+m2). - The proof will also provide a simpler proof for the
non-relativistic case.
