The next pair of presentations looked at some of the relationships other than groups and periods, such as the diagonal relationship, the (n) and (n+ 10) relationship, the Knight's move relationship, isoelectronic patterns, relationships among the lanthanoids and actinoids, and the concepts of "combo" and pseudo elements.
The two are isoelectronic, isostructural, and even have the same phase diagram.
We used this technique to determine the nonrelativistic ground state energies for the following members of the He isoelectronic sequence, [Li.
Hence, our goal is to see how well we can do in the four electron case of Be and the isoelectronic Be-like anion, [Li.
These authors treat other members of the Be isoelectronic sequence as well, and are the best results for four electron atoms so far.
