            Bibliography of atomic wave functions

            in Solid State Physics (ed. by F. Seitz and D. Turnbull, Academic Press, Inc. NY, 1957) vol. 4, pp. 413-421


                       In the table,  F-   last entry should have been 101-NSX;    S-  entry should have been 12-NAX;   Zr4+ entry should have been 1-NS


                       Table ref. 79 should have been expanded somewhat: “...(1935);  see also A. Tubis, Phys. Rev. 102, 1049 (1956).”

                       Table ref. 87, first entry, should have been “L. Biermann and E. Trefftz, ...”

                       Table ref. 101 became Proc. Cambr. Phil. Soc. 53, 206 (1957)

                       Table ref. 102 became Proc. Cambr. Phil. Soc. 53, 663 (1957)

                       Table ref. 110 should have been “J. H. Wood and G. W. Pratt, Jr.,...” and it became Phys. Rev. 107, 995 (1957).


                       A small unpublished supplement dated April, 1959 exists, containing further table references (118 through 136) and relating to the following atoms and ions:

                       A(Ar), Ag+, Al (all ionization states 0 through 11+), B-, C-, C, Cl-, Co++, F-, F, F+, F++, F+3, Hg, Hg++, K+, Kr, Kr+8, Mg++, Mg+3, Mg+4, Mn+4, N-, N, N+, Na+, Na++, Na+3, Na+4, Ne+5, O- -, O-, O, O+, O++, Pt, S-, Si+4, U, U+6, V++, W, Zr+4.

            Excited-state wave functions, excitation energies, and oscillator strengths for argon (3p54s)

            Phys. Rev. 110, 375-381 (1958) [also AFOSR TN-57-791 and ASTIA AD-148023]


                       In ref. 5, “paper to be published”: W. W. Piper, Phys. Rev. 123, 1281 (1961)

                       In ref. 22, ‘Wolf’ should be ‘Wolff’

                       In Table III, third column, the values of E should read 16.651, 11.606, 11.18 (unchanged), 10.131, and 8.692.  For explanation, see A. Gold and R. S. Knox, Phys. Rev. 113, 834-839 (1959), caption of Table III.

                       In Table III, second row, updated values are E(3P1) = 11.620 and d = 0.2044  [see J. D. Dow and R. S. Knox, Phys. Rev. 152, 50 (1966), Table III.]


      5.   R. S. Knox

            Inversion symmetry of the M center

            Phys. Rev. Lett. 2, 87-88 (1959)

            Excited-state wave functions, excitation energies, and oscillator strengths for Ne (2p53s)

            Phys. Rev. 113, 834-839 (1959)


                       In Table III, there are two important corrections:

                                    the column marked zp actually contains 10 zp (typographical only);

                                    the experimental value of d should be 0.177, not 0.153.

                       In Table IV, the numbers in the column labeled “Theory (2)” are incorrect because we erroneously used the computed values of z.  The correct value of the oscillator strength ratio is 13.2 after correction is made.  (Correspondence with A. V. Phelps, May 1959).  Also, the experimental polarizability should be quoted as 2.69, not 5.90.  See paper 27 for further small parameter corrections.


      7.   Robert S. Knox

            Exciton states in rare gas crystals

            J. Phys. Chem. Solids 9, 238-264 (1959)


                       The numbers [only] of refs. 4 and 5 are interchanged in the reference list.

                       In ref. 48, there are only two citations.  “Sov. Phys. (JETP)…” is a translation of the preceding one.

                       Demidenko (Sov. Phys. Solid State 3, 869 (1961) points out some errors in some of the expansion coefficients of E(k), and therefore in effective masses.  


      8.   Robert S. Knox

            Exciton states in crystalline argon

            J. Phys. Chem. Solids 9, 265-280 (1959)


                       In ref. 12, the fourth author’s correct name is Piercey

                       In ref. 20, the year of the SSMTG report 6 is probably 1954.

                       See the remark about Demidenko regarding publication 7.  It will affect this paper also.


      9.   Robert S. Knox

            Configuration interaction in alkali halide phosphors

            Phys. Rev. 115, 1095-1106 (1959).   Reprinted in Selected papers on Phosphors, LEDs, and Scintillators: Application of Photo-, Cathodo-, Electro-, and Radioluminescence, edited by Marvin J. Weber (SPIE Optical Engineering Press, Bellingham, WA, 1998)

            Exciton states in ionic crystals

            Phys. Rev 116, 1093-1099 (1959)


                       In ref. 15, the correct authors are P. L. Hartman, J. R. Nelson, and J. G. Siegfried.

                       In ref. 20(b), the correct publication date is 1958.  The conference was in October 1957.

                       In  ref. 21, the authors of the first citation should be L. Apker and E. A. Taft.


    11.   Dwight C. Burnham, Frederick C. Brown, and Robert S. Knox

            Electron mobility and scattering processes in AgBr at low temperatures

            Phys. Rev. 119, 1560-1570 (1960)


                       In ref. 32, the correct year of publication is 1957.  The citation should also include “vol. 4, pp. 199-366.”


    12.   R. S. Knox

            A note on exciton multiplicities

            Prog. Theor. Phys. 24, 909 only (1960)


    13.   R. S. Knox and F. Bassani

            Band structure of solid argon

            Phys. Rev. 124, 652-657 (1961)


                       Ref. 5 undoubtedly refers to J. Phys. Chem. Solids 20, 64-75 (1961)

                       In ref. 16, the full article pages are 99-212.

                       Equation (A3) should be multiplied by W-1/2 and Eq. (A5) should be multiplied by 2l+1.

                       There is a hidden erratum to paper 13 [see paper 19, R. S. Knox, Rad. Res. 20, 77-82 (1963), center of page 80] giving revised values of calculated bare effective masses of electron and hole:  0.56 and 4.0 electron masses, respectively)

            The fine structure of absorption in NaCl:Ag

            J. Phys. Soc. Japan 18, suppl. II, 268-274 (1963)


                       In ref. 1, the publication year should be 1961 (the conference year was 1960)

                       In ref. 6, the volume number (III) should have been mentioned

                       In ref. 9, the publisher’s name should be given as Jul. Gjellerups Forlag.  Also, while the citation in ref. 9 is to  p. 57, for a discussion of the detailed contributions of d in the case of dn ions in octahedral complexes, this is clearly wrong, since the work is a 56-page pamphlet, possibly a published version of a Ph. D. thesis.  The reference probably should have been to pp. 33-36, but various parameters are discussed throughout. 

                       Ref. 17 was published:  “Paramagnetic resonance and optical absorption of trapped holes and electrons in irradiated KCl:Ag,” Proc. Roy. Soc. A 247, 243-267 (1963)

                       In ref. 9, the correct page number is 483(only).

                       In ref. 12, the correct page numbers are 1562-1567.

                       In ref. 14, Fowler’s thesis title is “Energy bands in solid krypton” and the publication was W. B. Fowler,   “Electronic band structure and Wannier exciton states in solid krypton,” Phys. Rev. 132, 1591-1599 (1963)

                       Ref. 15 was published as #17 (above).

                       In ref. 13a, initials were omitted:  read J. R. Reitz and J. L. Gammel.

                       In ref. 15, the page cited is not the article page number, which is 1

                       In ref. 19, published spelling of Mukherjee is Mukherji

                       In ref. 20, the correct authors are (in this order) W. Hayes and W. T. Twidell

                       In ref. 23, the initials of Roothaan should be changed to “C. C. J.”   Ransil’s complete initials are “B. J.”  The work of Wahl and Gilbert ultimately appeared, probably as T. L. Gilbert and A. C. Wahl, “Single-configuration wavefunction and potential curves for low-lying states of He2+, Ne2+, Ar2+, F2-, Cl2-, and the ground state of Cl2,” J. Chem. Phys. 55, 5247-5261 (1971)

                       In Table III, the Kittel citation should be “Introduction to Solid State Physics (second edition)” and the year should be 1956


    23.   R. S. Knox and M. H. Reilly

            Atomic multipole interactions in rare-gas crystals

            Phys. Rev. 135, A166-A170 (1964)

                       In ref. 14, page number should be 215.

                       In ref. 23, the T. P. McLean review should be cited as Prog. Semiconductors v. 5, page 53 (1960).  The erroneous citation is to a paper by Nikitine.

                       In ref. 40, the source should be Phys. Rev. 106, 241 (1957) (The source given for Koester and Givens was actually that of ref. 4)

                       In ref. 41, the journal is J. Chim. Phys.


                The following was distributed with most reprints:

                       “NOTE:   Inadvertently we omitted reference to the Hartree-Fock radial functions used in this work.  They were:

                       “Ag+:  B. H. Worsley, Proc. Roy. Soc. (London) A247, 390 (1958).

                       “Cl-:  D. R. Hartree and W. Hartree, Proc. Roy. Soc. (London) A156, 45 (1936).”



    25.   Doris J. Olechna and Robert S. Knox

            Energy band structure of selenium chains

            Phys. Rev. 140, A986-A993 (1965)


                       In ref. 1, delete the author’s initial “E.”

                       In ref. 2, the author’s initials should be “A. J.”


                       A more complete citation for ref. 18:  H. Gobrecht and A. Tausend, “The conductivity and band structure of hexagonal selenium,” in Physics of Semiconductors: Proceedings of the 7th intl conf ., Paris 1964 (ed. by M. Hulin, Dunod, Paris, 1964) 1189-1200.  The Paris edition is definitely 1964, as opposed to the apparent year of the New York edition

                       A more complete citation for ref. 23:  S. Robin-Kandare and J. Robin, “Temperature dependence of the refractive index and the polarizability of free carriers in some III-V semiconductors,” in Proc. Intl. Conf. on Semiconductor Physics, Prague 1960 (anonymous)-ed. (Publishing House of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences, Prague, 1961), pp. 388-394.

            Direct radiative exciton-exciton annihilation

            J. Chem. Phys. 44, 2577-2580 (1966)


                       Ref. 13 appears to have the wrong authors listed.  The existing paper at this journal page is by C. A. Parker and C. G. Hatchard.  Also, the journal should be cited as Proc. Roy. Soc. A

                       In ref. 14, the full page numbers of the article are 1-89.  We were referring to pages 53-55 specifically.

                       In ref. 17, the second paper listed is by G. C. Nieman and G. W. Robinson (omit H. Sternlicht).

                       In ref. 19, the page number should be 2309.

                       In ref. 21, the full page numbers of the article are 23-42.  We were referring to page 27 specifically.

                       An important erratum to the first paper in ref. 17 should have been mentioned [H. Sternlicht, G. C. Nieman and G. W. Robinson, J. Chem. Phys. 39, 1610-11 (1963)].


    27.   John D. Dow and Robert S. Knox

            Excited-state wave functions, excitation energies, and oscillator strengths for krypton and xenon

            Phys. Rev. 152, 50-56 (1966)


                       In ref. 22, author omitted:  Charlotte E. Moore

                       In Table IV ref. “e” the volume “A116” should be “A166”


    28.   R. S. Knox

            Symmetry distribution of normal modes in macroscopic crystals

            Solid State Comm. 4, 453-454 (1966)


                       Page 454, second column, 11th line from top:  should read “theorem shows that transverse modes will also decompose into”

                       In the abstract that is in German:  first line, “gezeit” should be “gezeigt”;  second line, the lower-case n should be na;  fourth line, “eimem” should be “einem”;  last line, the correct long word is “Grossenordnung”.


    29.   R. S. Knox

            Semiclassical theory of the infrared spectrum of KCl:Tl°

            Phys. Rev. 154, 799-801 (1967)


                       In ref. 9, the correct page number for Henry et al. is A583 (A602 is the final page).


    30.   David B. Benin and Robert S. Knox

            Theory of the thermal conductivity of solid neon

            Bull. Am. Phys. Soc. [II] 12, 355 (1967)


                       This abstract is listed as a publication because Benin published alone and no other record of the collaboration exists.


    31.   Robert S. Knox and Doris J. Olechna

            Excited-state wavefunctions, excitation energies, and oscillator strengths in selenium (p4«p3s)

            J. Chem. Phys. 47, 5226-5231 (1967)


                       In ref. 10, the date of the Condon and Shortley edition is 1953, not 1963.

                       Several typographical corrections: 

                       In Eq. (3.2), curly brackets should act to combine E(1S0) and E(3P0) on the left side; same for E(1D2) and E(3P2).  In the caption of Fig. 1, the second (b) should be (bę).  In the caption of Table I, first line, “eigenvalues” replaces “eigenvalue”.   On page 5229, fifth line of text, read “higher” instead of “high”.   In the first line following Eq. (4.5), “(4-3)” should be “(4.3)”.  Seven lines below that, “states” replaces “stares”.   At the top right of p. 5230, first line, insert so that the line reads “…configuration interaction as well as 5p”.  Six lines below Eq. (4.7), lp is lp.  At the top of the right column on p. 5231, the second line should read “considered here has recently been presented…”.

                       In the Lumry et al. ref.,  delete “C.” in “Mayne, B. C.”

                       In the Nishimura and Takamiya ref.:  N. Murata, the first author, was omitted

                       In the Sybesma and Duysens ref.: the correct publication date is 1966; the conference was in Sept. 1965.          Inclusive page numbers: 83-92.

                       In the first Creuzburg ref., authorship should be Creuzburg, M., and Raether, H.

                       Correction:  Kublitzky, A. (1934).  Ann. Physik 20, 793.  (note year and page)

                       Miyakawa, T. (1966) was published: Miyakawa, T. (1968) J. Phys. Soc. Japan 24, 768.

                       Correction:  Onaka, R., authorship should be  R. Onaka, A. Fukuda, and A. Ejiri.


                       It was pointed out by Prof. W. B. Fowler (8/8/75) that “several of the values for the high-frequency dielectric constant (for cesium halides) are wrong.”        


    34.   R. S. Knox

            Theory of polarization quenching by excitation transfer

            Physica 39, 361-386 (1968)


                       In ref. 3, the spelling of Levschin is probably Levshin or Levshchin.

                       In ref. 17, the article mentioned was published:  J. D. Dow, Phys. Rev. 174, 962-976 (1968)

                       In ref. 18, the page number 341 may be a specific citation because the actual article pages are 339-386

                       In ref. 22, the initial of Frakowiak should be ‘M’ and it probably should be Frackowiak.

                       In ref. 26, the source title should be Prog. Biophys. and Molec. Biol.


                       Eq. (7), page 364, is incorrect.  The left-hand side should be multiplied by 2 in its entirety.  This is a typographical correction and does not affect the argument associated with the equation.


                       There is published correspondence concerning this paper.  See miscellaneous publication 8.


    35.   R. S. Knox

            On the theory of trapping of excitation in the photosynthetic unit

            J. Theoret. Biology 21, 244-259 (1968)


                       The second Montroll reference is inadequately cited.  It should read “Montroll, E. W. (1967). In Wm. M. Mueller, ed., Energetics in Metallurgical Phenomena (Gordon and Breach, New York, N. Y.) vol. 3, pp. 123-167.”




    36.   R. S. Knox

            Storage of light energy and photosynthesis

            Nature 221, 263-264 (1969)


                       In ref. 2, replace “Bendall, D.” by “Bendall, F.”

                       In ref. 5, the article itself occupies pages 1-104, and the citation was to page 50 in particular.


    37.   R. S. Knox, S. Nikitine, and A. Mysyrowicz

            Kinetics of biexciton formation in CuCl

            Optics Communications 1, 19-21 (1969)


                       In ref. 6, the source is J. Phys. (France) Suppl.(166) C2-104.

                       Ref. 2 probably refers to this subsequent paper:  A. Bivas, R. Levy, S. Nikitine, and J. B. Grun, J. Phys. (France) 31, 227 (1970)

                       The first citation in ref. 6 probably refers to this:  M. Certier, C. Wecker, and S. Nikitine, Phys. Lett. 28A, 307 (1968).


    38.   S. D. Druger and R. S. Knox

            Theory of trapped hole centers in rare gas solids

            J. Chem. Phys. 50, 3143-3153 (1969)

                       In ref. 8, Keller et al., Phys. Rev. 154, 812 (1967) (corrected from 1966)

                       In ref. 50, the volume number should be 139, not 139A, and the author is P. S. Bagus


                       Equation 26 is incorrect.  Replace the first parenthetical expression by (ea03/32Ļ).  This is typographical and does not affect the numerical results.

                       Ref. 24 probably became K. S. Song, Canad. J. Phys. 49, 26-33 (1971); it has the same title, “Calculation of the self-trapped hole in solid argon”

                       In the second Duysens reference, the pages of the article are actually 10-25.  The citation was meant to refer specifically to page 18.

                       In Eqs. (3,4) the subscripts “T” appearing in two of the exponentials should not be subscripts.


                       This paper has three major errata.  A sheet describing them was circulated with many reprints:

                                    (1)  Eq. (8) required two corrections.  In the denominator, the second “A” should have been “Aę” and there is an additional term  -LN0exp(-E/kT).  These corrections make changes in the remainder of the paragraph necessary:  “If all terms involving exp(-E/kT) are omitted, one finds upon substitution of Eqs. (3) and (4) into Eq. (8) that the fluorescence yield is exactly equal to fF as given by Eq. (6).  Since our applications will deal with this nonequilibrium case, we shall henceforth regard fF as being precisely equal to the actual yield, although at extremely low intensities the latter formally approaches unity.”

                                    (2)  The left hand side of Eq. (12) should read N1/N0 instead of N1/N10; this is typographical.

                                    (3)  Near the bottom of p. 1358, read TD = 1080 °K instead of TD = 626 °K, and DFmax = 1.25 eV instead of 0.88 eV.  This corrects a numerical error, and the brief comments following the calculation must be modified accordingly, i. e., the intensities used by Sauer and Park were not so low as to operate the system barely at the thermodynamic limit of efficiency.

                       The circulated erratum memo, dated 11/16/71, concluded “I am indebted to Drs. H. A. Otten, of the University of Leiden, for pointing out that Eq. (8) was in error, and to Prof. A. R. Crofts, of the University of Bristol, for locating the numerical error.

                       In a footnote on page 92, the parable of the blind men and the elephant is attributed as follows:  “...from the Panchatantra, ca. 100 BC - 500 AD.  The author is believed to be Vishnu Sharma.  The parable reappears in Ved Byasa’s Mahabharata.”  This has been found to require clarification.  For example, Prof. A. K. Das points out that a mild inference is given here that the Panchatantra precedes the Mahabharata, which was not intended. 


                       According to Rhys Davids,* as quoted in Meier,** “the legend ... originated in the Pali ‘Udana,’ a collection of Buddhist legends, constituting a part of the ‘Tripitaka’ and apparently compiled in the second century B.C.  This source has long been known to the Western world...” (footnote 42 of Meier).   Annemarie Schimmel*** identifies an author ‘Rumi.’  Meier provides an extensive discussion of the legend, including its original form and a commentary on a second version.  The author is indebted to Prof. K.

                       The compositing staff for this MRS Symposium volume apparently had serious problems.  The references appearing on page 442 have nothing to do with our article.  Circumstances are only slightly mitigated by the fact that the correct set of references appears adjacent to (ahead of) our article, on page 436.  Therefore, despite the apparent pagination, the correct pagination to cite for this article is “436-441”!


                       The correct list of references, from page 436, is shown below.  This is a literal copy.  There are additional typographical corrections to be made; in ref. 6, the second author is correctly spelled Polivanov and in ref. 12 read ‘Condensed Matter’.

Books and Edited Volumes:


Robert S. Knox

Theory of Excitons, Academic Press, Inc., New York, 1963 (pp. 207 + viii).  Published as Supplement 5 of Solid State Physics (F. Seitz and D. Turnbull, editors)


                       Ref. 82: the translation of the citation is given incorrectly.  It should be Soviet Physics - Doklady 5, 530 (1960).  There is, however, a second paper corresponding to the “incorrect” citation and which originally appeared in Fiz. Tverd. Tela 2, 379 (1960).  The authors are the same and the title virtually the same.

                       Ref. 84:  ‘needs work’

                       Ref. 85:   page number should be 1043

                       Ref. 110:  third ref., R. Onaka, A. Fukuda, and A. Ejiri (not just R. Onaka)

                       Ref. 113:  second edition?

                       Ref. 210:  the pages cited are specific to the topic.  The Nikitine review actually begins on page 269 of Prog. Semiccond. v. 6

                       Ref. 279:  page number should be 455

                       Ref. 290:  page number for ZETF citation should be 1299

                       Ref. 299:  page number for Doklady citation should be 791

                       Ref. 312:  is also Fiz. Tverd. Tela 4, 790 (1962)

                       Ref. 319:  the author’s name should be Kachlivskii; original citations are Fiz. Tverd. Tela 3, 492 (1961) ,...

                       Ref. 320:  is also Fiz. Tverd. Tela 3, 1009 (1961)

                       Ref. 342:  page number should be 277

                       Ref. 366:  page number should be 538

                       Page 51, line after eq. 5-31, delete “m” in the exponential

                       Page 55, line just before eq. 6-6:  instead of “in (6-3c)” read “(above)”

                       Page 82, in the first row labeled “BSW,” change “16” to “6”

                       Page 83, 7 lines from the bottom, “axes” instead of “axis”

                       Page 90, 6 lines above eq. 10-1, the symbol 3JC4 should also have a superscript 2.

                       Page 91, Table 10-1:  it was pointed out by P. Dawber in 1966 (private communication) that the data in

                                    columns 6C3 and 6C4 should be interchanged.

                       Page 111, line 1, replace “(10-39)” by “(11-1)”

                       Page 123, eq. 12-3, remove the subscript “j” from “r

                       Page 173, 4 lines above eq. 1, “vector”

                       Page 174, 3 lines after eq. 2, change “Denoting” to “If one denotes”

                       Page 176, 4 lines after eq. 7, the superscript ka (k-alpha) should be in parentheses.

                       Page 178, second eq. 14, left-hand side is Pb(k)  (change k to kappa)

                       Page 255, line 2, “rhombohedron”

                       Page 275: the NOTE given here does not clearly refer to this article.

                       Pages 277 through 285, running head should be “EIGENFUNCTIONS...”

                       Page 315, Table IX:  see note on page 312.

                       Ref. 2.3:  authors’ full names not given

                       In #2.7, add volume 5, page 97.

                       In #2.8, add page: 277

                       In #3.14, the correct authors are G. C. Nieman and G. W. Robinson

                       In #4.2, add page: 146

                       In #4.10, the correct page number is 1555

                       In #5.7, the authors of the first paper are H. Sternlicht and H. M.

                                    McConnell;  the authors of the second paper are H. M. McConnell and

                                    R. Lynden-Bell

                       In #5.15, the authors are M. Ueta, M. Hirai, and H. Watanabe.

                       In #6.4, the first citation should be to Proc. Phys. Soc. (London) A 65

                       In $6.8, the page number of the first citation is A452.

                       In #7.4, the page number is 1691

                       There are three additional references, 3.19, 3.20, 5.16, in an informal

                                    erratum (see below)

                       #7.41 became A. Gold and H. B. Bebb, Phys. Rev. Lett. 14, 60 (1965);  see

                                    also H. B. Bebb and A. Gold, Phys. Rev. 143, 1 (1966).


                       There were significant corrections that the authors cast into the form of

                       revised pages.  On page 61, the statement that no work had been done to

                       determine the proper dielectric constant was in error, and reference is

                       made to Abe et al (3.19) and Sham and Rice (3.20). 


                       On pages 98 and 99, the analysis of the Avakian delayed fluorescence effect

                       was incorrect;  the corrections refer implicitly to an additional two

                       papers (5.16  -- see below).

                                   3.19  Y. Abe, Y. Osaka, and A. Morita, J. Phys. Soc. Japan 17, 1576

                                    (1962);  (The erratum sheets themselves are in error, giving 576 as the page.)

                                   3.20  L. J. Sham and T. M. Rice, Phys. Rev. 144, 708 (1962)


                       5.16  P. Avakian and R. E. Merrifield, Phys. Rev. Lett. 13, 541 (1964); V.

                                    Ern, P. Avakian, and R. E. Merrifield, to be published.  It is safe

                                    to assume that the material cited in the second reference will be

                                    found in P. Avakian, V. Ern, R. E. Merrifield, and A. Suna,

                                    “Spectroscopic approach to triplet exciton dynamics in anthracene,”

                                    Phys. Rev. 165, 974 (1968).  However, this has not been verified.
