Abstract

In this paper we examine the effectiveness of reducing the second order radial equation, of the hyperspherical coordinate solution to the two-electron Schrodinger equation, into a set of coupled first order linear equations as suggested by Klar. All results have been obtained in a completely nonadiabatic formalism thereby ensuring accuracy. We arrive at the conclusion that our application of the reduction process is in some way inconsistent and suggest a possible resolution to this anomaly.
