The G-condition for the N-representability of the two-electron reduced density matrix is tightened by replacing the semidefiniteness constraint with the true upper and lower bounds of the G-type Hamiltonian operator. The lower bound is not easily computed (in contrast to the sharp P- and Q-conditions), but maps onto a well-known integer programming problem. The sharp-G, sharp-P, and sharp-Q conditions are just three members of a much broader class of conditions based on exactly solvable model Hamiltonians.
