One approach for solving interacting many-fermion systems is the configuration-interaction method, also sometimes called the interacting shell model, where one finds eigenvalues of the Hamiltonian in a many-body basis of Slater determinants (antisymmeterized products of single-particle wavefunctions). The resulting Hamiltonian matrix is typically very sparse, but for large systems the nonzero matrix elements can nonetheless require terabytes or more of storage. An alternate algorithm, applicable to a broad class of systems with symmetry, in our case rotational invariance, is to exactly factorize both the basis and the interaction using additive-multiplicative quantum numbers; such an algorithm can reduce the storage requirements by an order of magnitude or more. We discuss factorization in general as well as in the context of a specific configuration-interaction code, BIGSTICK, which runs both on serial and parallel machines.
