  • n. Alternative spelling of ground state.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • In short order we had recast the Rayleigh-Ritz variational theorem for the groundstate energy in terms of the density n (r) instead of the many electron wave function, leading to what is now called the Hohenberg Kohn (HK) variational principle.

  • Finally it occurred to me that for a single particle there is an explicit elementary relation between the potential v (r) and the density, n (r), of the groundstate.

  • Maybe under influence of solar UV light, we might recycle hydrino mass back to the usual hydrogen (groundstate n = 1) matter???

  • "We recognised, in our work in the 1970s and 80s, the potential for a sort of forcefield between a Rydberg atom and a groundstate [or normal] atom.

  • It is a flip in the groundstate of hydrogen-atoms, the electron (or is it the proton?
