This paper deals with perturbation theory for discrete spectra of linear operators. To simplify exposition we consider here self-adjoint operators. This theory is based on the Feshbach-Schur map and it has advantages with respect to the standard perturbation theory in three aspects: (a) it readily produces rigorous estimates on eigenvalues and eigenfunctions with explicit constants; (b) it is compact and elementary (it uses properties of norms and the fundamental theorem of algebra about…

Analysis of the Feshbach-Schur method for the planewave discretizations of Schr{ö}dinger operators
A new numerical method and its analysis to solve eigen-value problems for self-adjoint Schr{o}dinger operators, by combining the Feshbach-Schur perturbation theory with planewave discretization is proposed.

Tosio Kato’s work on non-relativistic quantum mechanics: part 1
We review the work of Tosio Kato on the mathematics of non-relativistic quantum mechanics and some of the research that was motivated by this. Topics in this first part include analytic and
Abstract We consider a system of finitely many nonrelativistic, quantum mechanical electrons bound to static nuclei. The electrons are minimally coupled to the quantized electromagnetic field; but we

Solving the electron-nuclear Schrodinger equation of helium atom and its isoelectronic ions with the free iterative-complement-interaction method.
The physics of the free ICI wave function is analyzed by applying it to an imaginary atom called "eneon," [e(-)e(10+)e(-)](8+), in which both of the quantum effect of nuclear motion and the three-particle collisions are differently important from the helium and its isoelectronic ions.
Solving the Schrodinger equation for helium atom and its isoelectronic ions with the free iterative complement interaction (ICI) method.
The Schrodinger equation was solved very accurately for helium atom and its isoelectronic ions with the free iterative complement interaction (ICI) method followed by the variational principle and these results prove numerically that with thefree ICI method, one can calculate the solutions of the Schrodinging equation as accurately as one desires.
