  • Assessing the Correlation Between the Electron-Nucleus Binding and Electron-Electron Repulsion

    By Isabella Groover and Joey Henry Faculty mentor: Dr. Leanna Giancarlo Multi-electron systems add a level of complexity to the Schrödinger equation by introducing an electron-electron repulsion term into the potential energy. The electron-electron repulsion term is difficult to assess utilizing the Schrödinger equation due to extensive computation required. In this study, the binding energy between the 1s electron(s) and the nucleus of…
