We review the general theory of the Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov method in the context of the nuclear many-body problem. We examine the response of the Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov solutions to a one-body external field and derive the formalism needed to impose multiple constraints on the calculations. Finally, a pedagogical example is given to illustrate the Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov method using a schematic model of the nucleus.
