An analysis of the states in the phase space: the energy levels of quantum systems

S. Tosto

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The paper describes a possible approach to calculate the energy levels of simple quantum systems and many-electron atoms, where the Coulombian interaction is taken into account. In the particular case of hydrogen-like atoms, the results agree with those obtained through the well-known procedures of calculation. In the case of many-electron atoms, a simple formula is derived to calculate the electron energy levels; the results are in good agreement with the experimental spectroscopic data for several elements. © 1996 Società Italiana di Fisica.
