There aren’t many one-electron systems in nature, so we have to discuss what happens when a system contains more than one electron. Obviously, things will be more complicated, and in this chapter we will find out how. In Chapter 8, we will study many-electron atoms using our knowledge of the one-electron atom. This is typical: we usually try to break down a many-electron problem into one-electron problems, thus taking the electrons one at a time.
