Computational Hydrogen

By Martin Hunt1, Alejandro Strachan1

1. Purdue University

Solve the ground state for the hydrogen atom computationally using four gaussian functions as the basis set. You can change the width of each gaussian and explore how the description changes. Compare the energy and wave function with the exact solution.
