Bound state solutions of the two-electron Dirac-Coulomb equation
We present a variational method for solving the two-electron Dirac-Coulomb equation. When the expectation value of the Dirac-Coulomb Hamiltonian is made stationary for all possible variations of the different components of a well-behaved trial function one obtains solutions representative of the physical bound state wave functions. The ground state wave function is derived from the application of a minimax principle. Since the trial function remains well-behaved, the method remains safe from the twin demons of variational collapse and continuum dissolution.
The ground state wave function thus derived can be interpreted as a linear combination of different configurations. In particular, the admixing of intermediate states having one (two) electron(s) deexcited to a negative-energy orbital (orbitals) contributes a second-order level shift
If one extends the relativistic configuration interaction (RCI) treatment by additionally including negative-energy and mixed-energy

Examples of the minimax technique in relativistic atomic one-electron calculations
Several examples of the application of the minimax technique to relativistic calculations on one-electron atoms are given here. Normalizable eigenfunctions corresponding to the ground states of one-electron atoms with various angular momenta are derived analytically.
