Abstract The generalized density matrix method is applied to the microscopic derivation of the adiabatic collective hamiltonian. By way of construction, the hamiltonian obtained is the quantum operator in the collective variable space. For the calculation of the hamiltonian parameters, the combination of the density matrix equations of motion and the collective motion saturation principle is used. The constraint (driving force) in the equations of motion is determined self-consistently. For illustrative purposes two simple solvable models are considered.
