Very-high-Precision Normalized Eigenfunctions for a Class of Schrödinger Type Equations

Authors: Amna Noreen, Kare Olaussen


We demonstrate that it is possible to compute wave function normalization constants for a class of Schr¨odinger type equations by an algorithm which scales linearly (in the number of eigenfunction evaluations) with the desired precision P in decimals.

Keywords: Bound States, Eigenvalue Problems, Trapezoidal rule, poisson resummation
