While in the ground-state problem the focus is on the ground state energy, in the statistical mechanical framework the focus is on the grand canonical potential. Here, the grand canonical Hamiltonian plays an analogous role as the one played by the Hamiltonian for the ground-state problem. The former is written ˝O D HO SO NO ; (83) 46 A. Pribram-Jones et al. where HO , SO , and NO are the Hamiltonian, entropy, and particle-number operators. The crucial quantity by which the Hamiltonian differs from its grand-canonical version is the entropy operator5: SO D kB ln O ; (84) where O D X wN;i j«N;i ih«N;i j : (85) N;i j«N;i i are orthonormal N -particle states (that are not necessarily P eigenstates in general) and wN;i are normalized statistical weights satisfying N;i wN;i D 1.
