IN a letter to NATURE of November 25 last Dr. Norman Campbell discusses the problem of the possible consistency of the assumptions about the motion and arrangement of electrons in the atom underlying the interpretation of the series spectra of the elements based on the application of the quantum theory to the nuclear theory of atomic structure, and the apparently widely different assumptions which have been introduced in various recent attempts to develop a theory of atomic constitution capable… Expand
What and How Physics Contributes to Understanding the Periodic Law
The current status of explanation worked out by Physics for the Periodic Law is considered from philosophical and methodological points of view. The principle gnosiological role of approximations andExpand
EXPLANATION OF THE FINE STRUCTURE OF THE SPECTRAL LINES OF HYDROGEN IN TERMS OF A VELOCITY-DEPENDENT CORRECTION TO COULOMB'S LAW
Central forces have been productive in describing nature. Newton’s law of gravitational attraction describes to a high degree of accuracy the orbits of the planets; Coulomb’s law of electricalExpand
Quantum Theory at the Crossroads
The 1927 Solvay conference was perhaps the most important meeting in the history of quantum theory. Contrary to popular belief, the interpretation of quantum theory was not settled at thisExpand
The Isotopic Composition of the Elements
Early in the twentieth century, Rutherford realized that Thomson’s late nineteenth century plain cake model for the atom, describing the atom as consisting of electrons floating around in a positiveExpand

Niels Bohr began his career with an attempt to give a correct descriptive account of the motion of electrons. When forced to abandon this interpretation, he adopted, but soon rejected, aExpand
Explicit large nuclear charge limit of electronic ground states for
This paper is concerned with the Schrödinger equation for atoms and ions with N = 1 to 10 electrons. In the asymptotic limit of large nuclear charge Z, we determine explicitly the low-lying energyExpand
The Status of Slater's Theory of Many-Electron Atoms
For some years, Slater's theory of many-electron atoms has been strongly criticized, particularly in connection with the explanation of Hund's rules. This criticism is discussed. An analysis of theExpand
Relativistic Corrections for Calculating Ionization Energies of One- to Five-Electron Isoelectronic Atomic Ions
We have previously proposed a simple empirical equation to reproduce the literature values of the ionization energies of one-electron to four-electron atomic ions with very good agreement. However,Expand
The Electromagnetic Field Representation of the Quantum Mechanics
In this work a new representation of quantum mechanics, that is, the electromagnetic field representation, is proposed, which is different from the Schr̈dinger`s equation and Heisenberg`s Matrix. ItExpand
Explicit Large Nuclear Charge Limit of Electronic Ground States for Li, Be, B, C, N, O, F, Ne and Basic Aspects of the Periodic Table
TLDR
In the asymptotic limit of large nuclear charge Z, the low-lying energy levels and eigenstates are determined explicitly, and the predicted ground state spin and angular momentum quantum numbers agree with experiment in every case. Expand
