COMMENTS

From Pfund spectrum of hydrogen. Wavelengths in hydrogen spectrum are given by Rydberg's formula 1/wavelength = constant*(1/m^2 - 1/n^2).

a(n)=(n+5)^2-25=n*(n+10) except a(5p) p pos. Second (with m=5) of this kind after AO61039,Paschen (m=3) and before A061047,Hansen-Strong (m=7). For the fourth,what is the value of m in 1/m^2-1/n^2 ? m=9? [From Paul Curtz, Nov 01 2008]
