The scaled Hermite–Weber basis in the spectral and pseudospectral pictures

Computational efficiencies of the discrete (pseudospectral, collocation) and continuous (spectral, Rayleigh-Ritz, Galerkin) variable representations of the scaled Hermite-Weber basis in finding the energy eigenvalues of Schrodinger operators with several potential functions have been compared. It is well known that the so-called differentiation matrices are neither skew-symmetric nor symmetric in a pseudospectral formulation of a differential equation, unlike their Rayleigh-Ritz counterparts. In spite of this fact, it is shown here that the spectra of matrix Hamiltonians generated by Hermite collocation method may be determined by way of diagonalizing symmetric matrices. Furthermore, the symmetric matrix elements do not require the evaluation of Hermite polynomials at the grid points. Surprisingly, the present numerical results suggest that the convergence rates of collocation and Rayleigh-Ritz methods are entirely the same.

The discrete fractional Fourier transform
Candan, Çağatay; OZAKTAS, HM (2000-05-01)
We propose and consolidate a definition of the discrete fractional Fourier transform that generalizes the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) in the same sense that the continuous fractional Fourier transform generalizes the continuous ordinary Fourier transform. This definition is based on a particular set of eigenvectors of the DFT matrix, which constitutes the discrete counterpart of the set of Hermite-Gaussian functions. The definition is exactly unitary, index additive, and reduces to the DFT for unit ord...
The Wigner molecule in a 2D quantum dot
Akman, N; Tomak, Mehmet (1999-10-01)
The charge density and pair correlation function of three interacting electrons confined within a two-dimensional disc-like hard-wall quantum dot are calculated by full numerical diagonalization of the Hamiltonian. The formation of a Wigner molecule in the form of equilateral triangular configuration for electrons is observed as the size of the dot is increased.

We study the charged lepton electric dipole moment which is induced by the scalar unparticle mediation and we predict the appropriate range for the free parameters appearing in the effective Lagrangian which drives the unparticle-standard model lepton interactions. We observe that the charged lepton electric dipole moment is strongly sensitive to the scaling dimension d(u) of the unparticle and the new couplings in the effective interaction. Furthermore, we see that the current experimental limits of charge...
The Sturm-Liouville operator on the space of functions with discontinuity conditions
Uğur, Ömür (2006-03-01)
The Sturm-Liouville differential operators defined on the space of discontinuous functions, where the moments of discontinuity of the functions are interior points of the interval and the discontinuity conditions are linear have been studied. Auxiliary results concerning the Green's formula, boundary value, and eigenvalue problems for impulsive differential equations are emphasized.
The Feynman path integral quantization of constrained systems
Muslih, S; Guler, Y (1997-01-01)
The Feynman path integral for constrained systems is constructed using the canonical formalism introduced by Guler. This approach is applied to a free relativistic particle and Christ-Lee model.
