Recurrence equations for the computation of correlations in the 1/r2 quantum many-body system

  • P. J. Forrester


In a previous paper the two-particle distribution function and one-particle density matrix for the quantum many-body system with the 1/r2 pair potential have been expressed as limiting cases of Selberg correlation integrals. Recurrence equations are derived which allow rapid evaluation of these multidimensional integrals. The exact results for the two-particle distribution are compared with the harmonic approximation.
