Fermionic natural occupation numbers do not only obey Pauli's exclusion principle but are even stronger restricted by so-called generalized Pauli constraints. Whenever given natural occupation numbers lie on the boundary of the allowed region the corresponding N-fermion quantum state has a significantly simpler structure. We recall the recently proposed natural extension of the Hartree-Fock ansatz based on this structural simplification. This variational ansatz is tested for the lithium atom. Intriguingly, the underlying mathematical structure yields universal geometrical bounds on the correlation energy reconstructed by this ansatz.

    The question of how density functional theory (DFT) compares with Hartree-Fock (HF) for the computation of momentum-space properties is addressed in relation to systems for which (near) exact Kohn-Sham (KS) and HF one-electron matrices are known. This makes it possible to objectively compare HF...

    The influence of electron correlation on the interparticle momentum distribution f ( p12), where p12=|p1-p2|, is examined for the individual intra- and intershell electron pairs in LiH. These changes Δ f ( p12) vs p12, known as Coulomb shifts, are compared with a similar and earlier analysis...
