The magnetisation of large atoms in strong magnetic fields


Søren Fournais


In this paper we study the asymptotic form of the magnetisation and current of large atoms in strong constant magnetic fields. We prove that the Magnetic Thomas-Fermi theory gives the right magnetisation/current for magnetic field strengths which satisfy B=<Z^{4/3}.
