HK Theorem I For any system of interacting particles in V ext , the potential is defined uniquely, except for a constant, by the ground state particle density n 0 ( r ) . Corollary : Since the H is thus fully determined, it follows that many-body wavefunctions for all states are determined. Thus all properties of the system are fully determined by n 0 ( r ) . HK Theorem II A universal functional for the energy E [ n ] in terms of the density n ( r ) can be defined, valid for any external potential V ext ( r ) . The exact ground state energy of the system is the global minimum value of this functional, and the density which minimizes the functional is the exact ground state density n 0 ( r ) . Corollary : The functional E [ n ] alone is sufficient to determine the exact ground state energy and density. Notes
