Hookean systems and Quantum DotsExact solutions of the Schrodinger equation for multiparticle systems with interparticle Coulombic interactions are unknown. One can try to find such exact solutions by modeling the interparticle interaction potential. Within this context, a much studied model is the Hookean two-electron atom, a system possessing a nucleus with charge +2 interacting through a harmonic potential with the electrons which, in turn, repel each other through the usual Coulomb interaction.
