Statistical electron correlation coefficients for 29 states of the heliumlike ions



Statistical electron correlation coefficients provide overall measures of the difference between the electron pair density and the product of one-electron densities. Explicitly correlated wave functions are used to compute radial and angular correlation coefficients for 29 low-lying states (n1S, n3S, n1P, n3P, n1D, and n3D with n < 7) of the two-electron ions from helium through Ne8+. This data base of 1566 correlation coefficients permits a systematic study of trends with respect to variation of nuclear charge, degree of excitation, angular momentum, and spin multiplicity. © 1993 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
