Theory of the Zeeman Effect in Highly Excited Atoms
This paper will be concerned with the quantum mechanical theory and associated calculations developed to treat atoms in strong laboratory strength (1–5 tesla) magnetic fields. These developments began in the early seventies in attempts to understand spectra of the alkaline earths obtained in the pioneering measurements by Garton and Tomkins , but, (together with those in classical theory), have been greatly stimulated over the last few years by the high resolution measurements on atomic hydrogen, made by the Bielefeld group .
