A New Approach to Computer Oriented, Quasi-Quantum Mechanical Dynamics
A new approach to atomic and molecular dynamics is developed which combines both quantum and classical concepts. Applications are made to the hydrogen atom, the hydrogen ion, and the hydrogen molecule. An accurate computer technique for the approximation of bond lengths is developed and illustrative examples of electron motions are described and discussed. Uncertainty results naturally from a mathematical statement of total system energy, which is always quantized. Angular momentum can be zero and need not be quantized, thereby avoiding inconsistencies of Bohr-Sommerfeld type models.
