Entanglement mean field theory is an approximate method for dealing with many-body systems, especially for the prediction of the onset of phase transitions. While previous studies have concentrated mainly on applications of the theory on short-range interaction models, we show here that it can be efficiently applied also to systems with long-range interaction Hamiltonians. We consider the (quantum) Lipkin–Meshkov–Glick spin model, and derive the entanglement mean field theory reduced Hamiltonian. A similar recipe can be applied to obtain entanglement mean field theory reduced Hamiltonians corresponding to other long-range interaction systems. We show, in particular, that the zero temperature quantum phase transition present in the Lipkin–Meshkov–Glick model can be accurately predicted by the theory.
