Concavity Theorems for Energy Surfaces

Giraud, B. G.; Karataglidis, S.;
Open Access English
  • Published: 23 Jun 2011
Concavity properties prevent the existence of significant landscapes in energy surfaces obtained by strict constrained energy minimizations. The inherent contradiction is due to fluctuations of collective coordinates. A solution to those fluctuations is given.
