This is really not a new theory but the following site does show a step by step solution for the hydrogen atom for anyone interested.http://users.aber.ac.uk/ruw/teach/237/hatom.php

Thanks Jeff. Take a look at http://users.aber.ac.uk/ruw/teach/237/shape.php and study the n = 1, l = 0 state. Notice that the probability density of finding an electron is not zero at r = 0. I suspect that this just might aid in electron capture.

Thanks Pete. That is interesting. I am just ordering a particle physics book. I'll let you know how I get on with it.

I recommend the one by David Griffiths. May I ask why you're getting such a book right now? You really need to have a solid basis in quantum mechanics before undertaking such a book. Also, don't forget that you can get such books online and for free at http://bookos-z1.org/If you don't mind some unsolicited advice I suggest you start from scratch and go from there. Learn in the following order;1) Classical Mechanics - http://bookos-z1.org/book/911552/4e2e992) Electrodynamics - http://bookos-z1.org/book/855303/857efd3) Thermal Physics - http://bookos-z1.org/book/2182988/f2faa94) Mathematical Methods of Physics - http://bookos-z1.org/book/446194/110f1b5) Quantum Mechanics - http://bookos-z1.org/book/2031469/90ac0b

I will also have a look at the other texts you suggest.
