Hydrogenlike atom with nonnegative quantum distribution function
Abstract
Among numerous approaches to probabilistic interpretation of conventional quantum mechanics (CQM), the closest to N. Bohr's idea of the correspondence principle is the BlokhintzevTerletsky approach of the quantum distribution function (QDF) on the coordinatemomentum (q, p) phase space. The detailed investigation of this approach has led to the correspondence rule of V.V. Kuryshkin parametrically dependent on a set of auxiliary functions. According to investigations of numerous authors, the existence and the explicit form of QDF depends on the correspondence rule between classical functions A(q, p) and quantum operator A. At the same time, the QDF corresponding to all known quantization rules turns out to be alternating in sign or overly complex valued. Finally nonexistence of nonnegative QDF in CQM was proved. On the other hand, from this follows the possibility to construct quantum mechanics where a nonnegative QDF exists. We consider a certain set of auxiliary functions to construct explicit expressions for operators O(H) for the hydrogen atom. Naturally, these operators differ from the related operator H in CQM, so that spherical coordinates are no longer separable for a hydrogenlike atom in quantum mechanics with nonnegative QDF.

Ultraviolet photochemistry of buta1,3 and buta1,2dienes: Laser spectroscopic absolute hydrogen atom quantum yield and translational energy distribution measurements
Using pulsed Hatom Lyman{alpha} laserinduced fluorescence spectroscopy along with a photolytic calibration approach, absolute Hatom product quantum yields of {phi}{sub Hb13d}=(0.32{+}0.04) and {phi}{sub Hb12d}=(0.36{+}0.04) were measured under collisionfree conditions for the 193 nm gasphase laser flash photolysis of buta1,3 and buta1,2diene at room temperature, which demonstrate that nascent Hatom formation is of comparable importance for both parent molecules. Comparison of the available energy fraction, f{sub Tb13d}=(0.22{+}0.03) and f{sub Tb12d}=(0.13{+}0.01), released as H+C{sub 4}H{sub 5} product translational energy with results of impulsive and statistical energy partitioning modeling calculations indicates that for both, buta1,3 and buta1,2diene, Hatom formation is preceded by internalmore » 
Perturbation of the excited states of the hydrogen atom and hydrogenlike ions by a neutral atom
Owing to the degeneracy of the energy levels, the wavefunction of the electron in the excited states of the hydrogen atom and hydrogenlike ions perturbed by a neutral atom B is significantly different from the wavefunction of the unperturbed state. The perturbed function has a wide high maximum in the region of atom B, which is explained by multiple collisions of the electron with atom B, because the classical trajectories in the Coulomb field are closed and the size of atom B is much smaller than the size of the excitedstate orbit. The radiative lifetimes of the excited states aremore »
