We prove Hohenberg-Kohn theorems for several models of quantum mechanics. First, we show that for possibly degenerate systems of several types of particles, the pair correlation functions of any ground state contain the information of the interactions and of the external potentials. Then, in the presence of the Zeeman interaction, a strong constraint on external fields is derived for systems having the same ground state densities and magnetizations. Next, we prove that the density and the…

Mixed state representability of entropy-density pairs
One of the basic questions arising in the variational approach of manybody quantum mechanics, and raised by Coleman [2], is whether some quantities like one-body or two-body density matrices, or
Some Properties of the Potential-to-Ground State Map in Quantum Mechanics
We analyze the map from potentials to the ground state in static many-body quantum mechanics. We first prove that the space of binding potentials is path-connected. Then we show that the map is
Unique continuation for the magnetic Schrödinger equation
Abstract The unique‐continuation property from sets of positive measure is here proven for the many‐body magnetic Schrödinger equation. This property guarantees that if a solution of the Schrödinger
Revisiting density-functional theory of the total current density
It is proved that Diener’s formulation is unfortunately not capable of reproducing the correct ground-state energy and, furthermore, that the suggested construction of a Hohenberg–Kohn map contains an irreparable mistake.
Kinetic energy functionals and the $N$-representability of the electron pair-density given by the classical map hyper-netted-chain (CHNC) method.
The classical map hypernetted-chain (CHNC) method for interacting electrons uses a kinetic energy functional in the form of a classical-fluid temperature. Here we show that the CHNC generated

We consider an electronic bound state of the usual, non-relativistic, molecular Hamiltonian with Coulomb interactions and fixed nuclei. Away from appropriate collisions, we prove the real analyticity

Hohenberg–Kohn theory including spin magnetism and magnetic fields
Beginning with work by U. von Barth and L. Hedin in 1972 and continuing with recent papers in 2001 by K. Capelle and G. Vignale and by H. Eschrig and W. E. Pickett, questions have been raised about
Self-Consistent Equations Including Exchange and Correlation Effects
From a theory of Hohenberg and Kohn, approximation methods for treating an inhomogeneous system of interacting electrons are developed. These methods are exact for systems of slowly varying or high
A local exchange-correlation potential for the spin polarized case. i
The local density theory is developed by Hohenberg, Kohn and Sham is extended to the spin polarized case. A spin dependent one- electron potential pertinent to ground state properties is obtained
