Tests of the Envelope Theory in One Dimension
The envelope theory is a simple technique to obtain approximate, but reliable, solutions of many-body systems with identical particles. The accuracy of this method is tested here for two systems in one dimension with pairwise forces. The first one is the fermionic ground state of the analytical Calogero model with linear forces supplemented by inverse-cube forces. The second one is the ground state of up to 100 bosons interacting via a Gaussian potential. Good bounds can be obtained depending on values of the model parameters.
