Abstract. We prove the ionization conjecture within the Hartree-Fock theory of
atoms. More precisely, we prove that, if the nuclear charge is
allowed to tend to infinity, the maximal negative ionization charge
and the ionization energy of atoms nevertheless remain bounded.
Moreover, we show that in Hartree-Fock theory the radius of an atom
(properly defined) is bounded independently of its nuclear charge.
