TL;DR Summary
relation between two-particle green function and Hartree-Fock
could anyone explain why in the page of book this figure is related to hartree-fock? I mean why if t1>t2 we have these possibilities? and why not particle propagate from x2t2 to x3t3 instead x3t3+?

Because you can show that if you write ##G_{12} = G_1G_2## you can get HF equations. It's not difficult but it's not easy as well. I can look up my old notes if you are interested in a formal proof.

I really want to why these spliting of G2 result in HF and I want to match the graphs to relation 6.62 but I think the right-up graph does'n match to any of G1s.
I will be grateful if you check your notes or introduce a book with similar notation of this book: Inkson, manybody theory of solids.

It looks like an error to me too, but don't take my world without checking for yourself.

Anyway I'll be back this afternoon or tomorrow because I need some time to find and make sense of my notes again

Thanks again for replying.

Thanks a lot but I think it's not the thing I'm looking for. Because I am new in many-body physics I want a simple approach and according to Inkson's book there are two approaches "equation of motion method ...more physically understandable than the use of wick's theorem" . And many of books I think use wick theorem, whereas I need another method.
So I think I need a proof for HF like its proof for Hartree potential.

The article I linked says exactly the same things as the one you posted. What is not clear to you ?

Actually I didn't follow the proof and it's notations. I can't understand the relation between the HF formula that was in the first chapter and the HF formula in terms of green function; It's not clear to me. I want to start with 6.66 eq. and reach to 1.30 or 1.31 eq. It's not clear for me at all how can I do this.
