## Research Interests

ATOMIC, MOLECULAR AND OPTICAL PHYSICS

Together with colleagues (faculty and students), I have used hyperspherical harmonics to "do" nuclear, molecular and atomic calculations: the atomic calculations seem especially promising. Our goal is to construct good, relatively simple, wave functions for atomic systems with more than 2 electrons, that yield energies with errors less than 1 part in 10,000, and do this for excited states as well as for the ground state - which is much easier to calculate. That is very important as current methods cannot be extended to more than 2 electrons, or can do so only with very great difficulties.

Colleagues and I have developed a method in which the essential parts of atomic wave functions are isolated and written in terms of 1-body and 2-body amplitudes. These can then be expanded, in a particularly economical way, in terms of a subset of a general hyperspherical basis. We obtain by this procedure wave functions which faithfully preserve 2-body correlations, while enormously simplifying calculations. Testing this method by doing calculations for helium and H-minus (2 electron systems) we obtained very good results.

The challenge is now to calculate binding energies for 3 and 4-electron systems (Lithium and Beryllium), and demonstrate the worth of our method for more than 2 electrons. This is what we have started to do.

STATISTICAL MECHANICS

One of my longstanding interests has been to demonstrate and implement a beautiful relationship between Statistical Mechanics and Scattering theory. It allows us to calculate traces in statistical mechanics, just from binding energies and asymptotic quantities (large distance properties of the few body wave functions) such as few body S-matrices. The goal is to calculate cluster coefficients (and therefore also coefficients arising from density expansions of thermodynamical quantities), which at the present time we can do classically, but are still only learning to do quantum mechanically.

I have pioneered in trying to obtain the few body S-matrix by using Hyperspherical methods (going to a "higher dimensional" coordinate system well suited to describe wave functions of 3 and more particles) and Adiabatic bases. Besides our use of the S-matrix in the statistical mechanics context, its calculation gives us results interesting in other areas, such as atomic and molecular physics, since it involves looking at such phenomena as elastic and inelastic scattering rearrangements and break-up. Though many results have been obtained (3-body clusters at very low temperatures, semi-classical limits, hyperspherical harmonics, model S-matrix calculations...), by my collaborators and me, great challenges remain!
