The Meyer orthonormal wavelet has been applied for solving Schrödinger equations for atoms. Using the wavelets as a basis set, the radial Schrödinger equation with the Hartree-Fock-Slater potential is solved to obtain wave functions for atomic bound states and pseudostates. The validity of these wave functions is tested by calculating radiative transition rates and photoionization cross sections. The advantage of employing wavelets as a basis set for atomic calculations is discussed.
