The ratio between the ground-state energy and the second lowest eigenvalue of the two-electron atom raised to a power N as a function of l for N ¼ 6; 7; . . ; 13. As expected, the second derivative will develop a delta-function-like behavior as N is getting larger, as shown in Fig. 8c. The behavior of the ground-state energy and its first and second derivatives resembles the behavior of the free energy at a first-order phase transition. For the two-electron atoms, when l < lc the nuclear charge is large enough to bind two electrons; this situation remains until the system reaches a critical point lc , which is the maximum value of l for which the Hamiltonian has a bound state or the minimum charge necessary to bind two electrons.

157 and references therein). In complex scaling the coordinate ~ x of the Hamiltonian was rotated into the complex plane; that is, Hð~ xÞ ! Hð~ x eif=2 Þ. For resonances that have yres ¼ tanÀ1 ½ImðEðresÞ Þ=Re ðresÞ ðE Þ < f the wave functions of both the bound and resonance states are represented by square-integrable functions and can be expanded in standard L2 basis functions. As an example, the Hamiltonian equation, Eq. (101), with a ¼ 0:2 and ðresÞ J ¼ 0:2, presents a sharp resonance E0 ’ 0:23676931 À i 0:98613158 10À03 , ðresÞ and its second resonance is E1 ’ 1:2516098 À i 0:48039784.

12. C. Critical Nuclear Charges for N-Electron Atoms For N-electron atoms, Lieb [115] proved that the number of electrons, Nc , that can be bound to an atom of nuclear charge, Z, satisfies Nc < 2Z þ 1. With this rigorous mathematical result, only the instability of the dianion H2À has been demonstrated [115]. For larger atoms, Z > 1, the corresponding bound on Nc is not sharp enough to be useful in ruling out the existence of other dianions. However, Herrick and Stillinger estimated the critical charge for a neon isoelectronic sequence, Zc ’ 8:77.
