A simple and effective approach to calculate the energy of complex atoms

Héctor O. Di Rocco


It is shown in this paper that, using only common concepts of well known modern physics and quantum mechanics textbooks (as one- and two-electron atoms, perturbation theory), we can develop a simple and powerful method to calculate the binding energies of complex electron configurations, as well as ionization energies, X-ray levels, etc.
