 P: 194 If you solve the angular part of the Schrödinger equation in the Coulomb potential (or for any spherically symmetric potential), you'll find that in order to satisfy boundary conditions at $\theta=0$ and $\theta=\pi$ and $\phi=0$ and $\phi=2\pi$, you need to have "integer orbitals" (in your language).
