Electronic Structure: Electronic Structure of atoms (theory)
The analysis of the spectrum of the hydrogen atom has been the starting point of the development of Quantum Mechanics at the beginning of the last century. The calculation of the energy eigenvalues

Abstract The current state of the art in relativistic calculation of atomic structures is surveyed. The theory is modelled on the practice in non-relativistic calculations, using many-particle wave
An Introduction to Relativistic Quantum Chemistry
Chemistry is governed by the shell structure of the atoms. This holds in particular concerning the periodic system of chemical elements. Non-relativistic quantum chemistry describes the motion of
Many-body perturbation theory in atomic structure calculations
The path to accurate relativistic atomic structure calculations is lined with several points of interest or danger. Much of the non-relativistic many-body perturbation theory formalism, including the
An Introduction to Crystal Field Effects in Magnetism
Over the past one-hundred years the electronic properties of the free atoms and free ions have been extensively studied by optical spectroscopy.[1] These studies have led to an excellent
The Quantum Structure of the Atom
The earlier chapters have discussed the interaction between electromagnetic radiation and a free charged particle (electron). In the last chapter it was found that, when the classical description is
Relativistic Effects in Atomic Structure Calculations: An Introduction
Let us first consider qualitatively how relativistic effects influence atomic structure calculations. Using atomic units (i.e. e = ħ = mo =1), the mean velocity of a 1s electron in a Coulomb field of
