The dispersion coefficients ${\mathit{C}}_{6}$, ${\mathit{C}}_{8}$, and ${\mathit{C}}_{10}$ for the interactions among H, He, and Li are calculated using variational wave functions in Hylleraas basis sets with multiple exponential scale factors. With these highly correlated wave functions, significant improvements are made upon previous calculations and our results provide definitive values for these coefficients. \textcopyright{} 1996 The American Physical Society. 

Polarizabilities of hydrogen molecules calculated without using the Born-Oppenheimer approximation

The static dipole polarizabilities of the first three lowest states of hydrogen molecules ${\mathrm{H}}_{2}$, HD, and ${\mathrm{D}}_{2}$ are calculated using variationally generated wave functions in

High-precision calculation of the dispersion coefficients of ground-state hydrogen using a variationally stable approach

Highly accurate computations of the van der Waals dispersion coefficients of hydrogen are presented. Using the variationally stable method of Gao and Starace [Phys. Rev. Lett. 61, 404 (1988); Phys.

Low energy universality and scaling of Van der Waals forces

At long distances, interactions between neutral ground-state atoms can be described by the van der Waals potential. In the ultracold regime, atom-atom scattering is dominated by $s$-waves phase

Energetics and structural properties of three-dimensional bosonic clusters near threshold

We treat three-dimensional bosonic clusters with up to $N=40$ atoms, interacting additively through two-body van der Waals potentials, in the near-threshold regime. Our study includes super-borromean

Weakly Bound LiHe$$_2$$2 Molecules in the Framework of Three-Dimensional Faddeev Equations

A method of direct solution of the Faddeev equations for the bound-state problem with zero total angular momentum is used to calculate the binding energies. The results for binding energies of

Accurate relativistic many-body calculations of van der Waals coefficients C8 and C10 for alkali-metal dimers

We consider long-range interactions between two alkali-metal atoms in their respective ground states. We extend the previous relativistic many-body calculations of C6 dispersion coefficients [Phys.

Weakly Bound Li He$$_\mathbf{2 }$$2 Molecules

The results for binding energies of $$^6$$6Li He$$_2$$2 and $$^7$$7Li He$$_2$$2 systems are presented. They are obtained by solving Faddeev equations in configuration space. It is shown that the

Dispersion coefficients for interactions between hydrogen and helium atoms with Coulomb and screened Coulomb potentials

We have carried out calculations to investigate Van der Waals two-body dispersion coefficients C8, C10 and C12 for the H(1s 2S)–He(1s2 1S) system with screened Coulomb interactions in the framework

Long-range dispersion interactions between Li and rare-gas atoms

Abstract The energy levels, oscillator strength and dipole scalar polarizabilities of Li atoms are calculated by using the relativistic semiempirical-core-potential method (RCICP). The dispersion



Angular Momentum in Quantum Mechanics

This book offers a concise introduction to the angular momentum, one of the most fundamental quantities in all of quantum mechanics. Beginning with the quantization of angular momentum, spin angular
