John Avery, James Emil Avery

The generalized Sturmian method for obtaining solutions to the many-particle Schrodinger equation is reviewed. The method makes use of basis functions that are solutions of an approximate Schrodinger equation with a weighted zeroth-order potential. The weighting factors are especially chosen so that all the basis functions are isoenergetic with the state they are used to represent. This means that all the basis functions have turning points located in such a position that they can contribute usefully to the synthesis of the wave function. The method is illustrated by a simple example-the calculation of atomic spectra.
