The Schrödinger equation for an atom or molecule is expressed in terms of hyperspherical coordinates. The eigenfunction is expanded in a series of orthonormal complete sets: Yλ,μ(Ω), eigenfunctions of generalized angular momentum scalar operator, and L vn, generalized Laguerre polynomials. The recurrence relation of the expansion coefficients are derived and the eigenvalues can be obtained from the secular equation.
