2 Atomic and Molecular States Rudiments of Quantum Theory –the old quantum theory –mathematical apparatus –interpretation Atomic States –hydrogen –many-electron Molecular states –classification –chemistry

3 Rudiments of Quantum Theory

4 Maxwell equations Space and time change of phase Relativistic relation E  p Photons and Particles Electromagnetic field –The wave equation –Plane waves, The wave function Planck’s hypothesis, dualism –Particle (E,p)  ( ,k) de Broglie wave

5 Bohr’s Model of the Hydrogen Atom Classical atom –Unstable: accelerated motion, continuous radiation Bohr’s rules –Quantized angular momentum Only certain circular orbits allowed Discrete set of stationary states Discrete spectrum of energy –Discrete spectrum of radiation –Coulomb and centrifugal force –Bohr radius

6 General operator Operator algebra Mathematical Apparatus Philosophy: Act of observation –Interaction through which the quantity is ‘observed’ –Possible results of observation –Non-commuting observations Mathematics: operators in Hilbert space –Eigenvalue equation –Commutation relations

7 Mathematical Apparatus Interpretation postulates –Possible results of observation  are eigenvalues a n –Observation  on a system in eigenstate  n certainly leads to a n –The mean value of the observable  on the ensemble of systems  Physical postulates –The correspondence principle In the limit of ‘large’ system quantum laws reduce to classical laws Relation between classical quantities with no derivatives holds also for quantum operators –The principle of complementarity The Heisenberg uncertainty principle Mean value Complementarity principle Schrödinger representation “An experiment on one aspect of a system is supposed to destroy the possibility of learning about a 'complementary' aspect of the same system”.

8 Angular Momentum Space orientation of the orbit –Magnetic and electric moments Internal and external interactions Classical Quantum –Spherical coordinates Boundary condition  +2n 

9 The Copenhagen Interpretation Probabilistic approach –Probability density Collapse of the wave function –Schrödinger’s Cat –Two-Slit Experiment cyanide capsule radioactive isotope Indeterminate quantum states “collapse” to definite values when they do, not when a human being catches them in the act

10 Atomic States

11 Hydrogen Particle in a central potential Coulomb potential –Electron spin –Fine structure: relativistic corrections Electron-nucleus, Kinetic energy, Spin- orbit interaction –Lamb shift –Hyperfine structure SO coupling – internal Zeeman

12 Hydrogen
