Quantumclassical electron distributions in atoms and atomic ions
Abstract
A quantumclassical approach is used to obtain the velocity distributions in atoms and positive and negative ions in both ground and excited states. In the analysis, HartreeFock electronic wavefunctions are used to determine the radial electron distributions, and the centralfield approximation is used to study the the dynamic properties of the localized electrons. The distributions for the outer and inner shells are found to agree well with exact results obtained by numerical calculations.
