Square-Well Approximation for the Anharmonic and the Double-Well Oscillators

  title={Square-Well Approximation for the Anharmonic and the Double-Well Oscillators},
  author={B. P. Mahapatra and N. B. Pradhan},
  journal={arXiv: Quantum Physics},
A novel general approximation scheme (NGAS) proposed earlier (ref.2-3) is applied to the problem of the quartic anharmonic (QAHO) and the double-well-oscillator (QDWO) in quantum theory by choosing the infinite square-well-potential in one dimension as the input approximation. The leading order (LO) results obtained for the energy eigen-values are uniformly accurate to within a few percent of the exact results for $arbitrary$ values of the quartic coupling: $\lambda > 0$ and the level-index…

A new general approximation scheme(NGAS) in quantum theory:application to the anharmonic- and double well oscillators

A new scheme of approximation in quantum theory is proposed which is potentially applicable to arbtrary interacting systems. The method consists in in approximating the original Hamiltonian by one

Two-step approach to one-dimensional anharmonic oscillators

We propose a two-step approach to one-dimensional anharmonic oscillators. A generalized coherent-state ansatz is introduced for the first step. A theorem of Wick's ordering and a Bogoliubov

Operator method in the problem of quantum anharmonic oscillator

Abstract The problem of quantum anharmonic oscillator is considered as a test for a new nonperturbative method of the Schrodinger equation solution-the operator method (OM). It is shown that the OM
