Hartree-Fock calculations of atoms and molecular chains in strong magnetic fields


We calculate the binding energies of atoms and molecular chains in 10^12 G magnetic fields using the Hartree-Fock method. For Z>2 (4) at 1×10^12 (5×10^12), the isolated atom is energetically favored over the molecular chain.
