  • Attilio Rigamonti

Part of the UNITEXT book series (UNITEXT)

Abstract

The aim of this and of the following three Chapters is the derivation of the main properties of the atoms and the description of their behavior in magnetic and electric fields. We shall begin with the assumption of point-charge nucleus with mass much larger than the electron mass and by taking into account only the Coulomb energy. Other interaction terms, of magnetic origin as well as the relativistic effects, will be initially disregarded.
