Abstract:

Tests are made of the Runge-Kutta and especially Numerov methods of solving the reduced Schrodinger wave equation for a tabulated Morse potential. This is preliminary to numerical solution of the equation for a Klein-Dunham potential. Normalized wave functions given at an interval of 0.01A in internuclear separation, agree closely with those obtained analytically. A criterion for goodness of wave functions generated numerically, depending on observed rotational constants, is described.
