Abstract (EN)The multiconfiguration time-dependent Hartree–Fock (MCTDHF for short) system is an approximation of the linear many-particle Schrödinger equation with a binary interaction potential by nonlinear “one-particle” equations. MCTDHF methods are widely used for numerical calculations of the dynamics of few-electron systems in quantum physics and quantum chemistry, but the time-dependent case still poses serious open problems for the analysis, e.g. in the sense that global-in-time existence of solutions is not proved yet. In this letter we present the first result ever where global existence is proved under a condition on the initial datum that it has to be somewhat close to the “ground state”.
