hi guys. this is my first post so hello to everyone here!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

right, well to my problem. i'm attempting to solve (numerically) schrodingers equation.

ie time independent one, which can be taken as (d/dX2 + V(X))Y(X)=E*Y(X) (after defining a dimensionless constant to get rid of all the "junk" ;) )

first i am given that the potential V(X)=X*X and that the initial conditions that Y(0)=1 and Y'(0)=0, which is "appropriate for an even solution".

I then solve it numerically quite easily using a modified rungekutta method.

However i am not use how to adapt my program in order to solve for an odd solution...would it simply be a change of initial conditions?

thank you for the help guys, it is well appreciated.
