The BBGKY hierarchy in quantum statistical mechanics

  • Sezar Fesciyan


It is shown that the infinite volume limit of the equilibrium reduced density matrices, shown by Ginibre to exist at low densities, satisfy the quantum time independent BBGKY hierarchy of equations. This extends analogous results for classical systems due to Gallavotti.
