SCHROEDINGER EQUATION

  • We teach our Modern Physics or Quantum Mechanics students the beautiful
  • analytic solution of the Schroedinger equation for the hydrogen atom.

    what

  • Then we have to explain that the Schroedinger equation can only be solved approximately
  • or numerically for all other atoms (not to speak of all molecules and solids)

    what

    because of interactions between electrons (and nuclei).
