Wague Pages: 174 - 180 Abstract: Calculations of the energy levels of atoms and ions with Z ≤ 10 are carried out in this paper using the complex rotation method. Using a new wave function with two terms including a new method to calculate the correlation factor taking into account spherical harmonics through hypergeometric functions to calculate excited 2sns+1,3Se, 2snp+1,3P0, 2pnp+1,3De, 3d4d +1,3Ge states. The results obtained show quantitatively the great significance of electron correlation effects in the doubly excited states. These results are in compliance with some experimental and theoretical data. PubDate: 2018-12-09 DOI: 10.12691/ijp-6-6-1 Issue No:Vol. 6, No. 6 (2018)

Pages: 181 - 188 Abstract: The work presented here is an extension of the work done in the article titled “The Conjugate Frame Method Relativity” [1]. In that work, we considered a moving reference frame that traveled at a constant speed v in a flat or curved space-time manifold. The moving reference frame traveled along a geodesic trajectory in a direction that was either directly towards or directly away from the stationary reference frame. The scalar acceleration a of the moving reference frame was equal to zero. In this work, we consider a moving reference frame that travels with a uniformly changing speed v in a flat or curved space-time manifold. The moving reference frame travels along a geodesic trajectory in a direction that is either directly towards or directly away from the stationary reference frame. The scalar acceleration a of the moving reference frame is a constant that is greater than or equal to zero. The Augmented Conjugate Frame Method is utilized in this work to derive the relativity equations of uniformly accelerating reference frames. These equations can apply to objects that are uniformly accelerated by gravitational, electric, or magnetic fields; as well as by other means, such as rocket propulsion. The relativity equations derived in this work reduce to the equations of Special Relativity when the moving reference frame has a zero scalar acceleration. The Augmented Conjugate Frame Method uses only scalar quantities in the derivation of the relativity equations of uniformly accelerating frames of reference.
