The Lieb-Thirring inequalities give a bound on the negative eigenvalues of a Schr\"odinger operator in terms of an $L^p$ norm of the potential. This is dual to a bound on the $H^1$-norms of a system of orthonormal functions. Here we extend these to analogous inequalities for perturbations of the Fermi sea of non-interacting particles, i.e., for perturbations of the continuous spectrum of the Laplacian by local potentials.

The state of the Lieb--Thirring conjecture
Estimates on the bound states of a Hamiltonian are of importance in quantum mechanics. For a Schrödinger operator −∆ + V on L(R) with decaying potential V : R → R of particular interest are bounds on
The Berezin inequality on domains of infinite measure
The Berezin inequality gives an upper bound on the Riesz means of the magnetic Schrödinger operator on a set of finite volume. We find an analogous inequality for the magnetic operator with
The Lieb–Thirring inequality revisited
We provide new estimates on the best constant of the Lieb-Thirring inequality for the sum of the negative eigenvalues of Schr\"odinger operators, which significantly improve the so far existing
Cwikel's theorem and the CLR inequality
We give a short proof of the Cwikel-Lieb-Rozenblum (CLR) bound on the number of negative eigenvalues of Schr\"odinger operators. The argument, which is based on work of Rumin, leads to remarkably
Best constants in Lieb-Thirring inequalities: a numerical investigation
We investigate numerically the optimal constants in Lieb-Thirring inequalities by studying the associated maximization problem. We use a monotonic fixed-point algorithm and a finite element
The Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation for Orthonormal Functions: Existence of Ground States
We study the nonlinear Schr\"odinger equation for systems of $N$ orthonormal functions. We prove the existence of ground states for all $N$ when the exponent $p$ of the non linearity is not too

Global Well-Posedness of the NLS System for Infinitely Many Fermions
In this paper, we study the mean field quantum fluctuation dynamics for a system of infinitely many fermions with delta pair interactions in the vicinity of an equilibrium solution (the Fermi sea) at


Connection Between the Lieb-Thirring Conjecture for Schrödinger Operators and An Isoperimetric Problem for Ovals on the Plane
To determine the sharp constants for the one dimensional Lieb– Thirring inequalities with exponent γ ∈ (1/2, 3/2) is still an open problem. According to a conjecture by Lieb and Thirring the sharp
Sharp Lieb-Thirring inequalities in high dimensions
We show how a matrix version of the Buslaev-Faddeev-Zakharov trace formulae for a one-dimensional Schr\"odinger operator leads to Lieb-Thirring inequalities with sharp constants $L^{cl}_{\gamma,d}$
Discrete Spectrum of the Periodic Schrödinger Operator with a Variable Metric Perturbed by a Nonnegative Potential
We study discrete spectrum in spectral gaps of an elliptic periodic second order differential operator in L 2 (ℝd ) perturbed by a decaying potential. It is assumed that a perturbation is nonnegative
Critical Lieb-Thirring Bounds in Gaps and the Generalized Nevai Conjecture for Finite Gap Jacobi Matrices
We prove bounds of the form $\sum_{e\in I\cap\sigma_\di (H)} \dist (e,\sigma_\e (H))^{1/2} \leq L^1$-norm of a perturbation, where $I$ is a gap. Included are gaps in continuum one-dimensional
Balanced distribution-energy inequalities and related entropy bounds
Lower bounds on the energy of a mixed state $\rho$ from its distribution in the partition and the spectral density of A are given, and a general log-Sobolev inequality holds on mixed states, without Markovian or positivity assumption on A.
Lieb-Thirring inequalities with improved constants
Following Eden and Foias we obtain a matrix version of a generalised Sobolev inequality in one-dimension. This allows us to improve on the known estimates of best constants in Lieb-Thirring

AbstractLet L = −Δ− W be a Schrödinger operator with a potential $$W\in L^{\frac{n+1}{2}}(\mathbb{R}^n)$$, $$n \geq 2$$. We prove that there is no positive eigenvalue. The main tool is an
