Group theory and the hydrogen atom (I)

  • Author(s): Bander, M
  • Itzykson, C
  • et al.

The internal 0(4) symmetry group of the nonrelativistic hydrogen atom is discussed and used to relate the various approaches to the bound-state problems. A more general group 0(1,4) of transformations is shown to connect the various levels, which appear as basis vectors for a continuous set of unitary representations of this noncompact group. © 1966 The American Physical Society.
