Schrodinger equation with unknown potential function

  1. Sep 22, 2014 #1
    How to find wave function if potential function is unknown. I have only the scattering data: time and coordinates of scattering particle.

    I think that from scattering data you should get some information about the form factor of your target (potential) and then try to model you potential according to the form factor.
