Abstract:

Two new numerical methods, the log derivative and the renormalized Numerov, are developed and applied to the calculation of bound-state solutions of the one-dimensional Schroedinger equation. They are efficient and stable no convergence difficulties are encountered with double minimum potentials. A useful interpolation formula for calculating eigenfunctions at nongrid points is also derived. Results of example calculations are presented and discussed. Author
