Evaluation Of The Reduction Of The Monodiabatic Hyperspherical Radial Equation To The First Order, Steven L. Carbon Jan 1987

Evaluation Of The Reduction Of The Monodiabatic Hyperspherical Radial Equation To The First Order, Steven L. Carbon

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

In this paper we examine the effectiveness of reducing the second order radial equation, of the hyperspherical coordinate solution to the two-electron Schrodinger equation, into a set of coupled first order linear equations as suggested by Klar. All results have been obtained in a completely nonadiabatic formalism thereby ensuring accuracy. We arrive at the conclusion that our application of the reduction process is in some way inconsistent and suggest a possible resolution to this anomaly.
