Download This **PDF **Book: Atomic Structure Theory: Lectures on Atomic Physics 2007 th Edition by Walter R. Johnson

This book provides a hands-on experience with atomic structure calculations. Material covered includes angular momentum methods, the central field SchrÃ¶dinger and Dirac equations, Hartree-Fock and Dirac-Hartree-Fock equations, multiplet structure, hyperfine structure, the isotope shift, dipole and multipole transitions, basic many-body perturbation theory, configuration interaction, and correlation corrections to matrix elements.

The book also contains numerical methods for solving the SchrÃ¶dinger and Dirac eigenvalue problems and the (Dirac)-Hartree-Fock equations.

This is a set of lecture notes prepared for Physics 607, a course on Atomic Physics for second-year graduate students, given at Notre Dame during the spring semester of 1994. My aim in this course was to provide opportunities for “hands-on” practice in the calculation of atomic wave functions and energies.

The lectures started with a review of angular momentum theory including the formal rules for manipulating angular momentum operators, a discussion of orbital and spin angular momentum, Clebsch-Gordan coefficients and three-j symbols.

This material should have been familiar to the students from first-year Quantum Mechanics. More advanced material on angular momentum needed in atomic structure calculations followed, including an introduction to graphical methods, irreducible tensor operators, spherical spinors and vector spherical harmonics.

## From the Back Cover

Atomic Structure Theory is a textbook for students with a background in quantum mechanics. The text is designed to give hands-on experience with atomic structure calculations.

Material covered includes angular momentum methods, the central field SchrÃ¶dinger and Dirac equations, Hartree-Fock and Dirac-Hartree-Fock equations, multiplet structure, hyperfine structure, the isotope shift, dipole and multipole transitions, basic many-body perturbation theory, configuration interaction, and correlation corrections to matrix elements.

Numerical methods for solving the SchrÃ¶dinger and Dirac eigenvalue problems and the (Dirac)-Hartree-Fock equations are given as well. B-spline basis sets are used to carry out sums arising in higher-order many-body calculations.

Illustrative problems are provided, together with solutions. FORTRAN programs implementing the numerical methods in the text are included.
