107) We assume at the beginning that the wave function has extrema such that the derivative of Eq. 107) is zero. This yields α = mω/(2h ¯ ), which can be substituted back into Eq. 107) to give H (α) = 12 h ¯ ω. This is exactly the ground-state energy obtained from the exact solution (see Chap. 2). 10 Perturbation Simple physical systems such as simple harmonic oscillators and hydrogen atoms can be solved exactly where the Hamiltonian is simple enough to generate exact eigenvalues. In general, the Hamiltonian is very complicated for most systems, such as many electron atoms, semiconductor heterostructures, multiple quantum wells, and quantum dots.
On the other hand, when |x − xo | is small as compared to 1/( k), the wave function oscillates only once as shown in the figure. Thus, when x moves away from xo , |ψ(x)| decreases. The decrease becomes appreciable if ei(k−k o )(x−xo ) oscillates approximately once. 33) This classical relation relates the widths of two functions that are Fourier transforms of each other. The important fact is that the product k x has a lower bound that depends on the precise definition of each width. With the help of the relation p = h ¯ k, Eq.
8 Chapter One Bohr’s model was significant in the development of quantum theory because it showed the potential usefulness of its concepts in describing the structure of atoms and molecules. However, attempts to extend Bohr’s model to helium and more complex atoms were not very successful. These problems were not fully solved until after 1930, and in order to work them out, a completely new and much more general theory of quantum mechanics had to be developed. Still, Bohr’s atomic system provided a simple picture of the structure of the one-electron atomic system.
