Symmetry Breaking of Relativistic Multiconfiguration Methods in the Nonrelativistic Limit

Abstract

The multiconfiguration Dirac-Fock method allows to calculate the state of relativistic electrons in atoms or molecules. This method has been known for a long time to provide certain wrong predictions in the nonrelativistic limit. We study in full mathematical details the nonlinear model obtained in the nonrelativistic limit for Be-like atoms. We show that… (More)
