Atoms in Strong Magnetic Field: A Stochastic Variational Study

  • K. Varga
Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 14)


A special deformed correlated Gaussian variational basis is introduced to solve few-electron problems in strong magnetic field. The bound state energies of the helium and lithium atoms and other few-electron systems are calculated by the stochastic variational method. The calculation significantly improves the accuracy of the energies of these systems.
