Thermic effects in Hartree systems

Dolbeault, J (Paris-Dauphine)
Monday 13 December 2010, 14:00-15:00

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


The goal of this lecture is to consider solutions of the Hartree and Hartree-Fock systems, both in attractive and repulsive cases, corresponding to non-zero temperatures. Such solutions are computed by minimizing a free energy functional, which can be proved to be bounded from below using interpolation inequalities. These Gagliardo-Nirenberg interpolation inequalities are equivalent to Lieb-Thirring inequalities. Various effects due to the temperature are charaterized, which also depend on the entropy generating function.
