Rydberg States of Atomic Systems

Let us consider multielectron atomic systems which are found in the definite stationary states. Most of the calculations of the properties of such systems and the classification of their quantum states are based on the single-particle approximation; according to this approximation each of the atomic electrons is found in the definite single-particle state.
