Syllabus
Prerequisites: Solid background in quantum mechanics
Target skills and knowledge: Capability of evaluating the relative energies of different spectroscopic terms associated to the same electronic configuration. Deep understanding of the weak and strong field. Capability of using the Tanabe-Sugano and Van Vleck-Kotani diagrams.
Examination methods: oral examination
Course unit contents: Part I
Schroedinger equation; radial (associated Laguerre polynomials) and angular (spherical harmonics and associated Legendre polynomials) wave-functions; real orbitals; radial and angular nodes; polyelectronic wavefunctions; Slater determinants; L2, Lz, L+, L-, S2, Sz, S+, S- operators; LS coupling;; electronic configuration and terms (specif examples: p2, p3, d2, d3); matrix elements associated to one-electron and two-electrons operators; Coulomb and Exchange integrals; relative energies of terms 3F , 3P, 1G, 1D, 1S associated to the electronic configutation d2; Slater-Condon parameters for configurations pn (F0, F2) and dn (F0, F2, F4); spin orbit coupling.
Part II
