Solutions of the Dirac-Fock equations for atoms and molecules. (English) Zbl 0938.35149

Using variational methods, the authors construct a whole sequence of solutions of the Dirac-Fock equations (without projector), which modelize a relativistic molecule with fixed atoms. The only conditions they require concern the total nuclear charge \(Z\) and the number \(N\) of electrons: they must satisfy \(Z\leq 124\), \(N\leq 41\) and \(N\leq Z\).
