Strong semiclassical limits from Hartree and Hartree–Fock to Vlasov–Poisson equations

Laurent Lafleche and Chiara Saffirio

Vol. 16 (2023), No. 4, 891–926

We consider the semiclassical limit from the Hartree to the Vlasov equation with general singular interaction potential including the Coulomb and gravitational interactions, and we prove explicit bounds in the strong topologies of Schatten norms. Moreover, in the case of fermions, we provide estimates on the size of the exchange term in the Hartree–Fock equation and also obtain a rate of convergence for the semiclassical limit from the Hartree–Fock to the Vlasov equation in Schatten norms. Our results hold for general initial data in some Sobolev space and any fixed time interval.
