Keywords: Quantum mechanics, Optical potential, Scattering, Schrodinger equation, Friction, Nuclear physics, Nuclear reaction.
Classification: 17.8.

Nature of problem:
Quantum mechanical treatment of classical equation of motion by time dependent nonlinear Schrodinger equations or solution of arbitrary (incl. optical) hamiltonians.

Solution method:
Finite difference method.

One-dimensional motion.

Unusual features:
Double precision complex arithmetic (IBM type COMPLEX*16) is used. It should be replaced by single precision complex arithmetic if run on a computer with more than approximately ten digits of accuracy.

Running time:
Depending on problem 0.5...5 m.
