Unformatted text preview: Supplement 8-A A Useful Theorem The following useful result appears in Pauli’s 1930 “Handbuch Article on Quantum Theory”: Consider eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of a Hamiltonian that depends on some parameter—for example, the mass of the electron, or the charge of the electron, or any other parameter that may appear in more complicated problems. The Schrödinger eigenvalue equation may then be written with the parameter explicitly indicated as, H( )un(r, ) E( )un(r, ) (8A-1) It follows that with the eigenfunctions normalized to unity, d 3ru*(r, )un(r, ) n 1 (8A-2) that d 3ru*(r, )...
