Abstract: Variational perturbation theory was used to solve the Schrödinger equation for a hydrogen atom confined at the center of an impenetrable cavity. Variational approach to a hydrogen atom in a uniform magnetic ﬁeld of arbitrary strength M. Bachmann, H. Kleinert, and A. Pelster Institut fu ¨r Theoretische Physik, Freie Univ The experimental data are presented for comparison. Applying the method of Lagrange multipliers to the RR variational principle, we must ex-tremize h jHj i (h j i 1) or Z H d3r Z d3r 1: (1) Taking the variational derivative with respect to we get H = 0. eigenfuctions of the 2D conﬁned hydrogen atom. Trial wave functions depending on the variational parameters are constructed for this purpose. Finally, in Sec. ... the ground-state energy of the hydrogen atom-like system made up of particles 1 and 3, can One example of the variational method would be using the Gaussian function as a trial function for the hydrogen atom ground state.

The free complement method for solving the Schrodinger and Dirac equations has been applied to the hydrogen¨ atom in extremely strong magnetic ﬁelds. In quantum mechanics, the variational method is one way of finding approximations to the lowest energy eigenstate or ground state, and some excited states.This allows calculating approximate wavefunctions such as molecular orbitals.

Variational method – The method is based on the variational principle, which says that, if for a system with Hamiltonian H ˆ we calculate the number ε = Φ ∣ H ˆ Φ Φ ∣ Φ, where Φ stands for an arbitrary function, then the number ε ≥ E 0, with E 0 being the ground-state eigenvalue of H ˆ. Variational methods in quantum mechanics are customarily presented as invaluable techniques to find approximate estimates of ground state energies. The basis for this method is the variational principle.. Variational Methods ... and the ψ100(r) hydrogen ground state is often a good choice for radially symmetric, 3-d problems. For very strong ﬁelds such as those observed on the surfaces of white dwarf and neutron stars, we calculate the highly accurate non-relativistic and relativistic energies of the hydrogen atom. 1.
