This volume will treat those aspects of electron correlation in atoms, molecules, and solids about which fundamental progress has proved possible. The main tools to be employed here are the first- and second-order density matrices (see Section 2.2), including the important observable electron density ρ(r) for the analytical development presented. Closely related tools, e.g., the Greens function, are used in discussing quantum computer simulations.
