Benchmark Calculation of Radial Expectation Value $$\varvec{\langle r^{-2} \rangle }$$ ⟨ r - 2 ⟩ for Confined Hydrogen-Like Atoms and Isotropic Harmonic Oscillators

Benchmark Calculation of Radial Expectation Value $$\varvec{\langle r^{-2} \rangle }$$ ⟨... Spatially confined atoms have been extensively investigated to model atomic systems in extreme pressures. For the simplest hydrogen-like atoms and isotropic harmonic oscillators, numerous physical quantities have been established with very high accuracy. However, the expectation value of $$\langle r^{-2} \rangle $$ ⟨ r - 2 ⟩ which is of practical importance in many applications has significant discrepancies among calculations by different methods. In this work we employed the basis expansion method with cut-off Slater-type orbitals to investigate these two confined systems. Accurate values for several low-lying bound states were obtained by carefully examining the convergence with respect to the size of basis. A scaling law for $$\langle r^{n} \rangle $$ ⟨ r n ⟩ was derived and it is used to verify the accuracy of numerical results. Comparison with other calculations show that the present results establish benchmark values for this quantity, which may be useful in future studies. Few-Body Systems Springer Journals
