Unformatted text preview: The Schroedinger Equation Dirac’s statement about exact solutions still holds: we do not know how to solve the Schoedinger equation exactly for many body systems. The Equations: “The underlying physical laws necessary for the mathematical theory of part of physics and the whole chemistry are thus completely known, and the difficulty is only that the exact application of these laws leads to equations much too complicated to be soluble” P.A.M. Dirac ih  ! > = H  ! > The Schroedinger equation and foundation of quantum mechanics • The classical wave equation (e.g. to describe a vibrating membrane) • The Schroedinger equation • Postulates and general principles Specifc systems and problems • Harmonic Ocillator • Hydrogen Atom • Multielectron atoms • Diatomic molecules Black body radiation The temperature of a certain type of lava ﬂow can be estimated by observing its color. The result agrees well with the measured temperatures of lava ﬂows at about 1,000 to 1,200 °C....
