dc.description.abstractA semiempirical hyperspherical model for the ground states of low-temperature helium clusters is proposed. Extension of the authors' delta function model for the helium dimer suggests an effective hyper-radial SchrÖdinger equation with two empirical parameters. The parameters are fitted so as to reproduce the ground-state energies and RMS interatomic distances in Blume and Greene's quantum Monte Carlo computations for 4 He N clusters with N = 3–10. The model can be extrapolated to N → ∞ to give a reasonable value for the binding energy per atom in a helium droplet. © 2005 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Int J Quantum Chem, 2006en_US
