A Summary of Decoherence and the Transition from Quantum to Classical by Wojciech H. Zurek

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Normie Jean B. Sajor Quantum mechanics is one of the most functional theories in the world of physics. ¬†It describes the workings of particles, atoms, and molecules with extraordinary accuracy and also explains the action of lasers and transistors. Yet, the debate about the relation of quantum mechanics to the familiar physical world continues. For […]

Radial Wavefunction of a Hydrogen Atom

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

Gibson T. Maglasang and John Paul Aseniero In this article, we outlined the necessary steps in calculating the radial wavefunctions [eq]R_{nl}[/eq] for the Hydrogen atom. Thus, the radial wavefunctions particularly [eq]R_{30 [/eq], [eq]R_{31 [/eq] and [eq]R_{32 [/eq] are easily obtained ¬†without bothering to normalize it. We use the formula below to find the wavefunction, [eq]R_{nl}=\frac{1}{r}\rho^{l+1}e^{-\rho}\nu(\rho),[/eq] […]
