Iteration methods for approximating the lowest order energy eigenstate of a given symmetry for one- and two-dimensional systems /

by Junkermeier, Chad E.

Abstract (Summary)
Using the idea that a quantum mechanical system drops to its ground state as its temperature goes to absolute zero several operators are devised to enable the approximation of the lowest order energy eigenstate of a given symmetry; as well as an approximation to the energy eigenvalue of the same order.
