Abstract

The screened hydrogenic radial dipole integral for discrete–discrete transitions from initial state nl′ to final state nl is asymptotically expanded to the lowest order such that the final quantum number n → ∞. The analytical expression obtained is in terms of confluent hypergeometric functions, and explicit expressions for a few of the specific transitions are derived from them as examples.
