A Coherent Derivation of an Average Ion Model Including the Evolution of Correlations Between Different Shells
MathematicS In Action, Tome 6 (2013) no. 2, pp. 1-14.

We propose in this short note a method enabling to write in a systematic way a set of refined equations for average ion models in which correlations between populations are taken into account, starting from a microscopic model for the evolution of the electronic configuration probabilities. Numerical simulations illustrating the improvements with respect to standard average ion models are presented at the end of the paper.
