Block circulant and Toeplitz structures in the linearized Hartree-Fock equation on finite lattices: tensor approach

Venera Khoromskaia and Boris N. Khoromskij


This paper introduces and analyses the new grid-based tensor approach to approximate solution of the elliptic eigenvalue problem for the 3D lattice-structured systems. We consider the linearized Hartree-Fock equation over a spatial $L_1\times L_2\times L_3$ lattice for both periodic and non-periodic problem setting, discretized in the localized Gaussian-type orbitals basis.

In the periodic case, the Galerkin system matrix obeys a three-level block-circulant structure that allows the FFT-based diagonalization, while for the finite extended systems in a box (Dirichlet boundary conditions) we arrive at the perturbed block-Toeplitz representation providing fast matrix-vector multiplication and low storage size. The proposed grid-based tensor techniques manifest the twofold benefits:

(a) the entries of the Fock matrix are computed by 1D operations using low-rank tensors represented on a 3D grid,

(b) in the periodic case the low-rank tensor structure in the diagonal blocks of the Fock matrix in the Fourier space reduces the conventional 3D FFT to the product of 1D FFTs.

Lattice type systems in a box with Dirichlet boundary conditions are treated numerically by our previous tensor solver for single molecules, which makes possible calculations on rather large $L_1\times L_2\times L_3$ lattices due to reduced numerical cost for 3D problems. The numerical simulations for both box-type and periodic $L\times 1\times 1$ lattice chain in a 3D rectangular "tube" with $L$ up to several hundred confirm the theoretical complexity bounds for the block-structured eigenvalue solvers in the limit of large $L$.
