We investigate the effect of many-body correlations on the ground-state properties of two coupled charged Bose quantum wires. The intrawire and interwire correlations are treated on the same footing within the self-consistent mean-field theory of Singwi, Tosi, Land and Sjölander. Static properties, viz., pair-correlation functions, local-field correction factors, screened interactions and susceptibilities, are calculated for a range of wire spacings d, wire radii R0, and boson density parameters rs. We find that the qualitative dependence of intrawire correlations on rs and R0 remains the same as found for an isolated wire, except that they become slightly weaker with the decreasing spacing d. The interwire correlations, on the other hand, depend strongly on d and are found to grow in magnitude with decreasing d. Further, we find no evidence for the existence of a charge-density-wave ground state in the density range investigated, I≤rs≤8, in the close proximity of wires. A comparison with the similar studies on the coupled electron quantum wires reveals that the charge-density-wave instability observed there may be an artifact of the neglect of interwire correlation effects.
