  1. Quantum Mechanics: Hydrogen Atom

    09 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck

    The solution of the Schrödinger equation (wave equations) for the hydrogen atom uses the fact that the Coulomb potential produced by the nucleus is isotropic (it is radially symmetric in space and only depends on the distance to the nucleus). Although the resulting energy eigenfunctions (the...
