### Book Recommondation for the time-dependent Schrödinger equation [duplicate]

Can you recommend a good book that discusses several methods for the numerical solution of time-dependent and time-independent Schrödinger equation? I have searched the internet several times but ...

### RCWA for Non-Periodic Structure?

I have a quick question regarding Rigorous Coupled Wave Analysis (RCWA) for numerically solving problems (in optics). I am trying to simulate a device which is non-periodic in x, y directions (but is ...

### Representing a 3D system in 2D (Electromagnetic modelling)

Ok so I'm a complete beginner in computational modelling (I use analytical methods of physics typically) but I would like to model an anisotropic, aperiodic (but not random) finite array of metallic ...

### BiCopter simulation in Matlab

I derived a bicopter dynamical model with two servos and two BLDC motors. And now am trying to simulate it using Matlab. As base for simulation I used this paper and this code Unfortunately, the ...

### fixed point iteration to find out second order non-linear diff equations

I am working on some model analysis, getting two diff equations and after I convert them into matrix form, I have equations looks like $$[A][X]=C\times\big(\exp([B][X])-1\big),$$ where $C$ is a ...

### Conservation at grid interface in adaptive mesh refinement

I am using adaptive mesh refinement to solve one dimensional inviscid Burgers equation. However I am facing some difficulty to handle grid interfaces which are not uniform (coarse-fine grid interface)....

### radially averaged power spectrum of a binary image does not look like power law

It has been known that Fourier power spectrum somehow obeys power law therefore the slope of the spectrum can be used to calculate the fractal dimension of an image. Many people have used it for ...
