Computational Derivation of the Properties of Few-Electron Atomic Systems

  • Katsunori Hijikata


The microscopic world is ruled by quantum mechanics. The effects of relativity and quantum electrodynamics are represented by the power series of αz, where α is the fine structure constant (e 2/4πε0 ħc = 1/137.0) and z is the atomic number. If we admit an error proportional to m 0 c 2z)6, the formulation is easily handled. In atoms and molecules, all the forces acting between particles are of electromagnetic origin and are completely defined. The theoretical derivation of the properties of atoms and molecules, therefore, is entirely a matter of computation.
