THE REDUCED HARTREE-FOCK MODEL FOR SHORT-RANGE QUANTUM CRYSTALS WITH DEFECTS
In this article, we consider quantum crystals with defects in the reduced Hartree-Fock framework. The nuclei are supposed to be classical particles arranged around a reference periodic configuration.
The Reduced Hartree–Fock Model for Short-Range Quantum Crystals with Nonlocal Defects
In this article, we consider quantum crystals with defects in the reduced Hartree–Fock framework. The nuclei are supposed to be classical particles arranged around a reference periodic configuration.
Mathematical study of quantum and classical models for random materials in the atomic scale
The contributions of this thesis concern two topics. The first part is dedicated to the study of mean-field models for the electronic structure of materials with defects. In Chapter 2, we introduce and
Removing a slab from the Fermi sea: the reduced Hartree-Fock model
Studying the electronic structure of defects in materials is an important subject in condensed matter physics. From a mathematical point of view, nonlinear mean-field models of localized defects in
A reduced Hartree–Fock model of slice-like defects in the Fermi sea
Studying the electronic structure of defects in materials is an important subject in condensed matter physics. From a mathematical point of view, nonlinear mean-field models of localized defects in
On stability of ground states for finite crystals in the Schrödinger-Poisson model
We consider the Schrödinger-Poisson-Newton equations for finite crystals under periodic boundary conditions with one ion per cell of a lattice. The electrons are described by one-particle Schrödinger
A numerical study of the extended Kohn–Sham ground states of atoms
In this article, we consider the extended Kohn-Sham model for atoms subjected to cylindrically-symmetric external potentials. The variational approximation of the model and the construction of
The reduced Hartree-Fock model with self-generated magnetic fields
We study the well-posedness of the reduced Hartree-Fock model for molecules and perfect crystals when taking into account a self-generated magnetic field. We exhibit a critical value $\alpha_c > 0$
On orbital stability of ground states for finite crystals in fermionic Schr\"odinger--Poisson model
We consider the Schr\"odinger--Poisson--Newton equations for finite crystals under periodic boundary conditions with one ion per cell of a lattice. The electron field is described by the $N$-particle
Mean--field stability for the junction of semi-infinite systems
Abstract Junction appears naturally when one studies the surface states or transport properties of quasi 1D materials such as carbon nanotubes, polymers and quantum wires. Œese materials can be seen

A New Approach to the Modeling of Local Defects in Crystals: The Reduced Hartree-Fock Case
This article is concerned with the derivation and the mathematical study of a new mean-field model for the description of interacting electrons in crystals with local defects. We work with a reduced
Density Functionals for Coulomb Systems
The idea of trying to represent the ground state (and perhaps some of the excited states as well) of atomic, molecular, and solid state systems in terms of the diagonal part of the one-body reduced
Generalized Hartree-Fock theory and the Hubbard model
The familiar unrestricted Hartree-Fock variational principles is generalized to include quasi-free states. As we show, these are in one-to-one correspondence with the one-particle density matrices

Existence of the thermodynamic limit for disordered quantum Coulomb systems
Following a recent method introduced by Hainzl, Solovej, and Lewin, we prove the existence of the thermodynamic limit for a system made of quantum electrons, and classical nuclei whose positions and

We establish the existence of the infinite volume (thermodynamic) limit for the free energy density of a system of charged particles, e.g., electrons and nuclei. These particles, which are the

A Mountain Pass for Reacting Molecules
Abstract. In this paper, we consider a neutral molecule that possesses two distinct stable positions for its nuclei, and look for a mountain pass point between the two minima in the non-relativistic
The Energy of Some Microscopic Stochastic Lattices
We introduce a notion of energy for some microscopic stochastic lattices. Such lattices are broad generalizations of simple periodic lattices, for which the question of the definition of an energy
