Three Dimensional Virial Theorem for the Hydrogen Atom

Saturday, March 20th, 2010

Catherine Therese J. Quiñones The virial theorem is a general theorem relating the potential energy (V) and the kinetic energy (T) in a bound system.  A simple physical example is a small object orbiting around another object  bound by a force as in the case of a hydrogen atom. The average kinetic energy and potential […]

Perturbation Theory: Quantum Oscillator Problem

Monday, April 20th, 2009

by ANCELIE C. ROSALES In quantum mechanics, the perturbation theory is a very important mathematical tool which is used to approximate physical quantities that describe complicated quantum systems based on our knowledge on the simpler ones. It tells us how to correct the solutions to the unperturbed or undisturbed problem to approximately account for the […]
