Title

Numerical Solutions of Quantum Mechanical Problems Using the Basis-Spline Collocation Method

Abstract

The time-dependent and time-independent Schrödinger equations have been numerically solved for several quantum mechanical problems with known analytical solutions using the basis-spline collocation algorithm. This algorithm has been demonstrated to be efficient and versatile. The results from these calculations illustrate the necessary numerical considerations required for solving both time-independent and time-dependent Schrödinger equations and form a basis that could be used for solving these and similar problems.
