Functional *N*-Representability in 2-Matrix, 1-Matrix, and Density Functional Theories ()

**Author(s)**Leave a comment

The

*N*-representability conditions on the reduced second-order reduced density matrix (2-RDM), impose restrictions not only in the context of reduced density matrix theory (RDMT), but also on functionals advanced in one-matrix theory such as natural orbital functional theory (NOFT), and on functionals depending on the one-electron density such as those of density functional theory (DFT). We review some aspects of the applications of these*N*-representability conditions in these theories and present some conclusions.Cite this paper
