Title
Many-body partition function and thermal Hartree-Fock approximations
Author
Abstract
The hierarchy equations for the quantum thermal density matrices of an assembly of interacting particles in an external potential are derived in a compact form. This approach can complement and finally replace the phenomenological treatment of the thermodynamic properties of quantum gasses. liquids, and solids. We also derive a temperature Hartree-Fock approximation for fermions based on the symmetry properties of the exact hierarchy and finally we discuss the present approximation in relation to that of Kaplan and Argyres [T. A. Kaplan and P. N. Argyres, Ann. Phys. (N.Y.) 92, 1 (1975)].
