Fluctuations of collective coordinates and convexity theorems for energy surfaces

Abstract : Constrained energy minimizations of a many-body Hamiltonian return energy landscapes $e(b)$ where $b$$\equiv$ $\langle {B} \rangle$ representes the average value(s) of one (or several) collective operator(s), $B$, in an "optimized" trial state $\Phi_b$, and $e$$\equiv$ $\langle {H} \rangle$ is the average value of the Hamiltonian in this state $\Phi_b$. It is natural to consider the uncertainty, $\Delta e$, given that $\Phi_b$ usually belongs to a restricted set of trial states. However, we demonstrate that the uncertainty, $\Delta b$, must also be considered, acknowledging corrections to theoretical models. We also find a link between fluctuations of collective coordinates and convexity properties of energy surfaces.
