Is there someone who knows references for a proof of the HVZ theorem in the case of a system of $N$ particles, some of which are fermions?

Doesn't this belong on the physics site? – Ishan Banerjee Feb 21 '13 at 12:30
@IshanBanerjee: This question concerns topics that are actually rarely studied by physicists. – Jas Ter Feb 21 '13 at 14:02

All references contain proofs:

  • Gustafson, "Mathematical Concepts of Quantum Mechanics".
  • Teschl, "Mathematical Methods in Quantum Mechanics" (freely available for personal use from
  • Reed and Simon, "Methods of Modern Mathematical Physics IV: Analysis of Operators"
  • Simon, "Geometric Methods in Multiparticle Quantum Systems", Commun. Math. Phys. 55, 259–274.

Thank you very much to all. Is the article ""Geometric Methods in Multiparticle Quantum Systems" available online? – user63339 Feb 21 '13 at 16:35
