Green’s Functions for Molecules

  • L. S. Cederbaum
Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 6)


The properties of a quantum system and the physical processes which can be described by Green’s functions are briefly outlined. A general approximation scheme to evaluate Green’s functions and propagators is discussed. Illustrative applications to molecules are presented and related to experiment.
