Re: Update to electron configuration convention?

Dear Sir,

I have interest in this matter too.

I know the Pauli's exclusion principle, but I do not understand why.

I was taught about Hund's rule , but I do not know why it holds still now.

Methinks that the core problem lies in the mathematical content of the atomic orbital wave functions if they are valid assumption. I think that the 4S atomic orbital wave function for N protons nucleus must differ from the same 4S atomic orbital wave function for N+1 protons nucleus, and in the same way the energy levels that correspond to the p orbitals for N and N+1 protons nuclei are different.

First of all, I am suspicious about the current theory of atomic orbital.

I am waiting for someone to deliver the numerical or analytical solution of ab initio calculaiton for many electron atom.

Sincerely

M.Y.
