Let be the Hamiltonian Energy equation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] H\Psi= E_{n} \Psi [/tex]

then let be the partition function:

[tex] Z=\sum_{n} g(n)e^{-\beta E_{n}} [/tex]

where the "Beta" parameter is 1/KT k= Boltzmann constant..the question is..let,s suppose we know the "shape" of the function Z...could we then "estimate" the Hamiltonian that yields to these energies?..thanks.
