Solutions of the Thomas-Fermi-Dirac Statistical Model of Atoms
Numerical integration of the Thomas-Fermi-Dirac equation on the IBM 701 has been carried out for atomic numbers Z = 1 to 100. Compressed, expanded, and isolated atoms were treated, the latter using the boundary condition suggested by Jensen. Tables of the solutions are given for all isolated atoms and for selected values of Z in the case of compressed and expanded atoms. The physical properties of interest for isolated atoms and the pressure-volume relationship for compressed and expanded atoms are presented in tabular form. Other physical properties are presented graphically.
