Nature of problem:The program calculates the normalized Gamow solution of the radial Schrodinger equation, i.e. the solution which is regular at the origin and has purely outgoing wave asymptotics, in a spherically symmetric complex potential of arbitrary form. Optionally either the complex energy eigenvalue in a given potential, i.e. the position of the pole of the scattering function S(E) or the strength of the short range potential belonging to a given energy value is computed. | ||

Solution method:Internal and external solutions satisfying the boundary conditions in the origin and the asympotic region, respectively, are generated by integrating the radial equation with the Fox-Goodwin method and from the mismatch of their logarithmic derivatives a correction to the eigen energy/potential strength is determined. The procedure is repeated with the corrected value till convergence. The wave function is normalized in the Zel'dovich sense by integrating numerically along a contour in the complex r-plane. | ||

Restrictions:The present method does not work in the vicinity of zero energy and for unphysical resonances and antibound states. | ||

Running time:0.5-3 s per iteration. |
