Accurate numerical bounds for the spectral points of singular Sturm-Liouville problems over -infinity < x <infinity

2000-03-01
The eigenvalues of singular Sturm-Liouville problems are calculated very accurately by obtaining rigorous upper and lower bounds. The singular problem over the unbounded domain (-infinity,infinity) is considered as the limiting case of an associated problem on the finite interval [-l,l]. It is then proved that the eigenvalues of the resulting regular systems satisfying Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions provide, respectively, upper and lower bounds converging monotonically to the required asymptotic eigenvalues. Numerical results for several quantum mechanical potentials illustrate that the eigenvalues can be calculated to an arbitrary accuracy, whenever the boundary parameter l is in the neighborhood of some critical value, denoted by l(cr).

Two-sided eigenvalue bounds for the spherically symmetric states of the Schrodinger equation
Zafer, A; Taşeli, Hasan (1998-08-28)
The eigenvalues of the radial Schrodinger equation are calculated very accurately by obtaining exact upper and lower bounds. By truncating the usual unbounded domain [0,infinity) of the system to a finite interval of the form [0,l], two auxiliary eigenvalue problems are defined. It is then proved that the eigenvalues of the resulting confined systems provide upper and lower bounds converging monotonically to the true eigenvalues required. Moreover, each auxiliary eigenvalue problem gives rise to an orthonor...
Boundary value problems for higher order linear impulsive differential equations
Uğur, Ömür; Akhmet, Marat (2006-07-01)
In this paper higher order linear impulsive differential equations with fixed moments of impulses subject to linear boundary conditions are studied. Green's formula is defined for piecewise differentiable functions. Properties of Green's functions for higher order impulsive boundary value problems are introduced. An appropriate example of the Green's function for a boundary value problem is provided. Furthermore, eigenvalue problems and basic properties of eigensolutions are considered.

Accurate numerical bounds for the spectral points of singular Sturm-Liouville problems over 0 < x < infinity
Taşeli, Hasan (Elsevier BV, 2004-03-01)
The eigenvalues of singular Sturm-Liouville problems defined over the semi-infinite positive real axis are examined on a truncated interval 0<x<l as functions of the boundary point l. As a basic theoretical result, it is shown that the eigenvalues of the truncated interval problems satisfying Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions provide, respectively, upper and lower bounds to the eigenvalues of the original problem. Moreover, the unperturbed system in a perturbation problem, where l remains sufficient...
Quantum mechanical computation of billiard systems with arbitrary shapes
Erhan, İnci; Taşeli, Hasan; Department of Mathematics (2003)
An expansion method for the stationary Schrodinger equation of a particle moving freely in an arbitrary axisymmeric three dimensional region defined by an analytic function is introduced. The region is transformed into the unit ball by means of coordinate substitution. As a result the Schrodinger equation is considerably changed. The wavefunction is expanded into a series of spherical harmonics, thus, reducing the transformed partial differential equation to an infinite system of coupled ordinary differenti...
Fully computable convergence analysis of discontinous Galerkin finite element approximation with an arbitrary number of levels of hanging nodes
Özışık, Sevtap; Kaya Merdan, Songül; Riviere, Beatrice M.; Department of Mathematics (2012)
In this thesis, we analyze an adaptive discontinuous finite element method for symmetric second order linear elliptic operators. Moreover, we obtain a fully computable convergence analysis on the broken energy seminorm in first order symmetric interior penalty discontin- uous Galerkin finite element approximations of this problem. The method is formulated on nonconforming meshes made of triangular elements with first order polynomial in two di- mension. We use an estimator which is completely free of unknow...
