Exactly Solvable Quantum Mechanical Potentials: An Alternative Approach.
Pronchik, Jeremy N.; Williams, Brian W.
Journal of Chemical Education, v80 n8 p918-26 Aug 2003
Describes an alternative approach to finding exactly solvable, one-dimensional quantum mechanical potentials. Differs from the usual approach in that instead of starting with a particular potential and seeking solutions to the related Schrodinger equations, it begins with known solutions to second-order ordinary differential equations and seeks to convert these to the Schrodinger form.
