Supersymmetry for the Hydrogen Atom
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In this thesis it will be shown that the hydrogen atom has a SU(2) × SU(2) symmetry generated by the quantum mechanical angular momentum and Runge-Lenz vector operators. Additionally, the hydrogenic atom will be studied with supersymmetric methods to identify a supersymmetry that relates different such systems. This thesis is intended to present the material in a manner accessible to people without background in Lie groups and supersymmetry, as well as fill in some calculations between steps that are not spelt out in the litterature.
