### Time dependent Schrödinger equation in 2D

I have the following Schrödinger equation in $2D$: \begin{cases} \partial_t \Psi(x,t) = V(x,t) \Psi(x,t) \quad x \in [-10,10]^2\\ \Psi(x,0)=\exp( \frac{1}{2} (-x^2+y^2)) \end{cases} where the ...

### Solving linear coupled PDEs by FDM

I am trying to solve some linear, coupled PDEs for perturbative analysis (first order in time, 3rd order in space), for which I then plan to take the global spatial maxima of their magnitudes and plot ...

### Solution of Burgers equation with some initial data

Consider the Burgers equation $$\partial_t u + \partial_x\left(u^2/2 \right) = 0, \quad u(0, x) = u_0(x).$$ eq = D[u[t, x], t] + D[u[t,x]^2/2, x] == 0 How ...

### Why ODE's naive finite difference matrix works well for different boundary conditions

We know finite difference method (FDM) can replace $y''(x)$ as $\frac{1}{h^2}[y(x+h)+y(x-h)-2y(x)]$ or so. The naive way to write down the matrix of the differential operator is like the following, ...

### Derivative of list of points: DifferentiatorFilter versus DerivativeFilter

I need to calculate the derivative from a list of experimental points. Mathematica has two functions which seem to do this: DifferentiatorFilter and DerivativeFilter. Which one is better for ...

### Optimizing finding the offset diagonals for a 2D Finite Difference Method

It is possible to collapse a conventional 2D PDE (in our case the Schrödinger equation) into one dimension by having each set of points be taken as a one dimensional list of $n$ lattice points and the ...
