Some numerical problems in quantum theory

Abstract:

This thesis presents the results of an exercise in practical numerical analysis whose aim is the estimation of realistic 'a posteriori' error bounds for the solutions of atomic structure calculations computed by finite-difference methods.

In performing these calculations the basic problem is to determine the eigenstates of a particle in a central force field by solving the one-dimensional radial form of the Schrodinger (non-relativistic) or Dirac (relativistic) equation, subject to ...
