Alkali Atoms and the Schrödinger Equation of One-Electron Atoms

  • Arno Böhm
Part of the Texts and Monographs in Physics book series (TEMP)

Abstract

In Section VII.1 the concept of perturbation theory is explained using the example of the alkali atoms. Section VII.2 represents an algebraic calculation of the matrix elements of Qv (v = 1, 3, 4, ...); the results are used for the calculation of the energy values of the alkali atoms. Section VII.3 gives a brief description of the solution of the Schrödinger equation for the hydrogen atom, which is used for an alternative computation of the matrix elements of Qv and an evaluation of the alkali energy values. It also lists some properties of the spherical harmonics which are used in the second part of this book.
