### Approximate analytic solution of Schroedinger equation with arbitrary power potential

I'm solving the following Schroedinger equation in the domain $r>0$
$\psi''(r) + \left(E-\frac{a}{r^b}\right)\psi(r)=0 $,
where $0 < b < 2$ and $a, E$ are positive constants. Primarily I'm ...

### Does there exist a potential which realizes this strange quantum mechanical system?

I have done some courses on quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics in the past. Since I also do math, I wonder about converge issues which are usually not such a problem in physics. One of those ...

### Justification for the matching condition for the wave function at potential jumps. Why is it both restrictive enough and sufficiently general?

Consider SchrÃ¶dinger's time-independent equation
$$
-\frac{\hbar^2}{2m}\nabla^2\psi+V\psi=E\psi.
$$
In typical examples, the potential $V(x)$ has discontinuities, called potential jumps.
Outside ...
