The Thermodynamic Limit of Coulomb Quantum Systems

Colloquium presented by Mathieu Lewin

In this talk I will review the methods for studying the limit of infinitely many quantum particles interacting through the Coulomb potential, like electrons and nuclei in ordinary matter. I will in particular present a new approach which generalizes previous results of Fefferman, Lieb and Lebowitz. This is joint work with Christian Hainzl (Birmingham, Alabama) and Jan Philip Solovej (Copenhagen, Denmark).
