I've monkeyed up a code which solves the 2D S.E. in a harmonic basis- i.e. writing the wf as a linear combination of harmonic oscillator states.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Has anyone got any references/comments on the relative accuracy/efficiency/drawbacks of using a harmonic basis instead of using the more direct position basis?
