The hypothesis was earlier suggested by the author where all micro-objects are considered as specific distortions of the physical space-time pseudo-Euclidean geometry, namely, as closed topological 4-manifolds. The foundation of the hypothesis is a geometrical interpretation of the basic equation of quantum mechanics for classical (not quantized) wave fields -- the Dirac equation for free particle. Such hypothesis does not contradict to any physical laws and experimental facts and gives firstly an opportunity to explain qualitatively within classical notions (geometrical) the so called “paradoxical” properties of quantum particles such as wave-corpuscular duality, appearance of probabilities in the quantum mechanics formalism, spin, EPR-paradox.To demonstrate prospects for suggested geometrical approach the author early attempted to find new dynamic equations other than known quantum-mechanical ones for atomic spectra calculations. In this work above investigation is being continued on a more rigorous basis, representing a new geometrical interpretation of the equation for hydrogen atoms. Results of calculations of ionization potentials for helium atom are in agreement with experimental data.
