    • Abstract

       

      The Hartree-Fock procedure is used to study the behaviour of the ground state of a system ofM spinless electrons distributed overN equivalent and equidistant sites (MN) as a function of the strength of the mutual repulsion between the electrons. Below a critical strength, all initial configurations are seen, after repeated iterations, to converge to a unique solution. Above this critical strength, in addition to the initial configurations which lead to a unique solution, there exist configurations which on repeated iterations give rise to stable two-period solutions. Although the number of independent stable two-period solutions depends on the coupling strength, for no value of the coupling are stable solutions of periodicity higher than two seen.
