Abstract: In this paper, a reliable algorithm for solving Schrödinger equations is established. By second-order central difference scheme, the second-order spatial partial derivative of the Schrödinger equations are reduced to a system of first-order ordinary differential equations, that are solved by an efficient algorithm. The comparison of the numerical solution and the exact solution for some test cases shows that the given algorithm is easy and practical for extracting good approximate solutions of Schrödinger equations.
Keywords: Schrödinger equations; finite difference method; numerical algorithms; approximation; second-order central difference; second-order spatial partial derivative; first-order ODEs; ordinary differential equations.
