Atomic Units: Before we start our analysis, it is convenient to introduce atomic units in order to rid the equation of unnecessary physical constants. Atomic units√ are defined by requiring that the electron’s mass m, the electron’s charge |e|/ 4π 0 , and Planck’s constant h ¯ , all have the value 1.

Generally the energy E in step 1 is just an estimate of the eigenvalue, so the numerical values determined by following steps 2 to 4 above give a wave function having an incorrect number of nodes and a discontinuous derivative at ac . This is illustrated in Fig. 2. In the example shown there, we are seeking the 4p wave function in a Coulomb potential with Z = 2. The corresponding radial wave function should have nr = n − l − 1 = 2 nodes. u. for the energy and carry out steps 2 to 4 above. u.. 44 2 Central-Field Schr¨ odinger Equation The number of nodes increases with increasing energy.

Similarly, when considering electromagnetic interactions, it is often necessary to combine the spin and orbital angular momentum components of the vector potential to obtain eigenfunctions of J 2 and Jz .
