Self-Consistent Mean Field Theories
There is a variety of mean field theories Which are also self-consistent, according to differing criteria. In the following discussion I will use the phrase “self-consistent mean field” in a narrowly defined sense. To define this sense, let us consider two systems A and B (Fig. 1) which are coupled. Each consists of many constituents that interact among themselves. The combined A+B system is isolated.
