From what I remember in my undergraduate quantum mechanics class, we treated scattering of non-relativistic particles from a static potential like this: Solve the time-independent Schrodinger ...
In my current quantum mechanics, course, we have derived in full (I believe?) the wave equations for the time-independent stationary states of the hydrogen atom. We are told that the Pauli Exclusion ...
Ok, bearing in mind that I only have a brief understanding of quantum mechanics (no formal education, only from reading about concepts in books), so I could be way off here, I have a question ...
The Schrödinger Equation provides a Probability Density map of the atom. In light of that, are either of the following possible: The orbital/electron cloud converges to a 2d surface without heat ...
I am taking an intro level quantum mechanics class. Our textbook gives a problem like this: The deuteron is a nucleus of "heavy hydrogen" consisting of one proton and one neutron. As a simple ...
One and the same electron in a p orbital and taking part in a common π (pi) bond has two lobes visualized as connecting through the nucleus. There is however zero probability of finding an electron at ...
What is the Madelung transformation and how is it used?
(This is a simple question, with likely a rather involved answer.) What are the primary obstacles to solve the many-body problem in quantum mechanics? Specifically, if we have a Hamiltonian for a ...
