Abstract

An iterative method is proposed to solve the Schrodinger eigenvalue problem in a wavelet framework. Orthonormal wavelets are used to represent the corresponding operator as a sparse band matrix. This representation, called the nonstandard (NS) form, is obtained by means of the Beylkin-Coifman-Rokhlin (BCR) algorithm and simplifies the numerical calculations. Problems due to the one-dimensional mathematical model and to the discretization process receive special attention.
