Discrete eigenproblems    [PDF]

J. S. Dowker
Schrodinger eigenproblems on a discrete interval are further investigated with special attention given to test cases such as the linear and Rosen--Morse potentials. In the former case it is shown that the characteristic function determining the eigenvalues is a Lommel polynomial and considerable space is devoted to these objects. For example it is shown that the continuum limit of the determinant is obtained by a transitional limit of the Lommel polynomials for large order and argument. Numerical comparisons between discrete approximations and (known) continuum values for the ratio of functional determinants with and without the potential are made and show good agreement, even for small numbers of vertices
