2D Schroedinger eq. vs Bohr's model?

    For low values of n, Bohr's model fails to reproduce the value of the square of angular momentum, and the repulsion angles

    But Bohr model is basically a planar model... so the question should be, if we solve the hydrogen atom potential in a 2D equation, is it still different? The eigenvalues of angular momentum squared, in generical dimensions, are as L(L+d-2), are they?

    I seem to remember the quantum solutions to the 2-D hydrogen atom having energy levels that depend on (n - 1/2) rather than n.

    Hmm I see. Probably related to Biederharn "Sommerfeld' puzzle"

    Thanks for the references, going to read them.
