I tried reading the Wikipedia article to no avail - I simply cannot understand the Schrödinger Equation (what does each of the variables mean, especially the wave function), and the Schrödinger Model ...
Where do mass polarization terms come from in many-body Hamiltonian? Why are they sometimes omitted?
This question is about the Hamiltonian for more than one particle (non-relativistic). Griffiths (Introduction to Quantum Mechanics, 2e) seems to imply that it is $\displaystyle ...
One of the problems with Bohr's theory to describe the hydrogen atom, was that the electron orbiting around the nucleus has an acceleration. Therefore it radiates and loses energy, until it would ...
I'm reading about Quantum Monte Carlo, and I see that some people are trying to calculate hydrogen and helium energies as accurately as possible. QMC with Green's function or Diffusion QMC seem to be ...
