Multielectron atoms: cant solve the Schroedinger equation exactly so assumptions must be
made; assume the hydrogenic obitals are adequate and electrons occupy them in some fashion
Two guiding principals used to account for electron configu

Atomic Structure
Wave properties of electrons are constrained by certain boundary conditions:
1) the electron exists somewhere in space
2) the electron is continuous
3) the electron is finite
When these conditions are imposed upon Schroedi
