**Non-degenerate Perturbation Theory**

Problem : can't solve exactly. But with Unperturbed eigenvalue problem. Can solve exactly. Therefore, know and called perturbations Copyright – Michael D. Fayer, 2007

**Sum of infinite number of terms for all powers of l equals 0.**

Coefficients of the individual powers of l must equal 0. zeroth order - l0 first order - l1 second order - l2 Copyright – Michael D. Fayer, 2007

**Example: x3 and x4 perturbation of the Harmonic Oscillator**

Vibrational potential of molecules not harmonic. Approximately harmonic near potential minimum. Expand potential in power series. First additional terms in potential after x2 term are x3 and x4. Copyright – Michael D. Fayer, 2007

15
**In Dirac representation**

First consider cubic term. Multiply out. Many terms. None of the terms have the same number of raising and lowering operators. Copyright – Michael D. Fayer, 2007

16
**has terms with same number of raising and lowering operators.**

Therefore, Using Only terms with the same number of raising and lowering operators are non-zero. There are six terms. Copyright – Michael D. Fayer, 2007

17
**Sum of the six terms Therefore With**

Energy levels not equally spaced. Real molecules, levels get closer together – q is negative. Correction grows with n faster than zeroth order term decrease in level spacing. With Copyright – Michael D. Fayer, 2007

**Perturbation Theory for Degenerate States**

and normalize and orthogonal and Degenerate, same eigenvalue, E. Any superposition of degenerate eigenstates is also an eigenstate with the same eigenvalue. Copyright – Michael D. Fayer, 2007

**zeroth order ket having eigenvalue,**

Here is the difficulty perturbed ket zeroth order ket having eigenvalue, But, is a linear combination of the We don’t know which particular linear combination it is. is the correct zeroth order ket, but we don’t know the ci. Copyright – Michael D. Fayer, 2007

22
**Substituting the expansions for E and into**

To solve problem Expand E and Some superposition, but we don’t know the cj. Don’t know correct zeroth order function. Substituting the expansions for E and into and obtaining the coefficients of powers of l, gives zeroth order first order want these Copyright – Michael D. Fayer, 2007

23
**Use projection operator**

To solve substitute Need Use projection operator The projection operator gives the piece of that is Then the sum over all k gives the expansion of in terms of the Defining Known – know perturbation piece of the Hamiltonian and the zeroth order kets. Copyright – Michael D. Fayer, 2007

**Substituting this and gives**

this piece becomes Substituting this and gives Result of operating H0 on the zeroth order kets. Left multiplying by Copyright – Michael D. Fayer, 2007

25
**Correction to the Energies**

Two cases: i m (the degenerate states) and i > m. i m Left hand side – sum over k equals zero unless k = i. But with i m, The left hand side of the equation = 0. Right hand side, first term non-zero when j = i. Bracket = 1, normalization. Second term non-zero when k = i. Bracket = 1, normalization. The result is We don’t know the c’s and the Copyright – Michael D. Fayer, 2007

26

One equation for each index i of ci. Besides trivial solution of only get solution if the determinant of the coefficients vanish. We know the Have mth degree equation for the Copyright – Michael D. Fayer, 2007

27
**Get system of equations for the coefficients, cj’s.**

Solve mth degree equation – get the Now have the corrections to energies. To find the correct zeroth order eigenvectors, one for each , substitute (one at a time) into system of equations. Get system of equations for the coefficients, cj’s. Know the There are only m – 1 conditions because can multiply everything by constant. Use normalization for mth condition. Now we have the correct zeroth order functions. Copyright – Michael D. Fayer, 2007

**The solutions to the mth degree equation (expanding determinant) are**

Therefore, to first order, the energies of the perturbed initially degenerate states are Have m different (unless some still degenerate). Copyright – Michael D. Fayer, 2007

29
**Correction to wavefunctions**

Again using equation found substituting the expansions into the first order equation Left multiply by Orthogonality makes other terms zero. Normalization gives 1 for non-zero brackets. gives gives 0 Therefore Normalization gives Aj = 0 for j m. Already have part of wavefunction for j m Copyright – Michael D. Fayer, 2007
