Abstract.

In this paper, the Hartree-Fock equations are proved to be the non relativistic limit of the Dirac-Fock equations as far as convergence of "stationary states" is concerned. This property is used to derive a meaningful definition of "ground state" energy and "ground state" solutions for the Dirac-Fock model.
