Ground State Energy of the Helium Atom

  • Alexander Yelkhovsky
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 570)


With an eye on the high accuracy (~ 10MHz) evaluation of the ionization energy from the helium atom ground state, a complete set of order 6 operators is built. This set is gauge and regularization scheme independent and can be used for an immediate calculation with a wave function of the helium ground state.
