Abstract

Variational perturbation theory was used to solve the Schrödinger equation for a hydrogen atom confined at the center of an impenetrable cavity. Ground state and excited state energies and expectation values calculated from the perturbation wavefunction are comparable in accuracy to results from direct numerical solution.
