Abstract (EN)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 αc > 0 such that if the fine structure constant α is smaller than αc, then the corresponding system is stable, whereas if α is greater than αc, it is unstable. We give an explicit characterization of αc as a minimization problem over the set of zero-modes, and we prove that the critical values for the molecular case and the periodic case coincide. Finally, we prove the existence of minimizers when the system is neutral or positively charged.
