A time-dependent mean field framework beyond the typical mean field approach

  title={A time-dependent mean field framework beyond the typical mean field approach},
  author={Aurel Bulgac},
The Boltzmann equation is the traditional framework in which one extends the time-dependent mean field classical description of a many-body system to include the effect of particle-particle collisions in an approximate manner. A semiclassical extension of this approach to quantum manybody systems was suggested by Uehling and Uhlenbeck in 1933 for both Fermi and Bose statistics, and many further generalization of this approach are known as the Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck (BUU) equations. Here I… Expand
