5 Potential Models The potential experienced by a bound atomic electron near r = 0 is dominated by the nuclear Coulomb potential, so we expect Z V (r) ≈ − , r for small r. 5 Potential Models 49 with ζ = Z − N + 1 for an N electron atom with nuclear charge Z. The transition from a nuclear potential to an ionic potential is predicted by the ThomasFermi model, for example. However, it is possible to simply approximate the potential in the intermediate region by a smooth function of r depending on several parameters that interpolates between the two extremes.

Dr Z From this equation, it follows that N (r), the number of electrons inside a sphere of radius r, is given by r d2 φ(r) dr dr2 0 r dφ = r −φ dr 0 dφ =r − φ(r) + 1 . 115) Evaluating this expression at r = R, we obtain the normalization condition 54 2 Central-Field Schr¨ odinger Equation X dφ dx =− X Z −N . 116) An iterative scheme is set up to solve the Thomas-Fermi differential equation. First, two initial values of X are guessed: X = Xa and X = Xb . 111) is integrated inward to r = 0 twice: the first time starting at x = Xa , using initial conditions φ(Xa ) = 0, dφ/dx(Xa ) = −(Z − N )/Xa Z, and the second time starting at x = Xb , using initial conditions φ(Xb ) = 0, dφ/dx(Xb ) = −(Z − N )/Xb Z.
