  • Abstract

In this paper, we study an adaptive finite element method for a class of nonlinear eigenvalue problems resulting from quantum physics that may have a nonconvex energy functional. We prove the convergence of adaptive finite element approximations and present several numerical examples of micro-structure of matter calculations that support our theory.
