Variational Method for Two-Electron Atoms
Srivastava, M. K.; Bhaduri, R. K.
American Journal of Physics, 45, 5, 462-464, May 77
Proposes a simple two-parameter trial wave function for the helium atom and helium-like ions. Shows that a variational calculation for the ground-state energy yields better results than the usual one-parameter example. (MLH)
