Abstract

The objective of this project is to solve for the energies and wave functions of quantum systems using an artificial neural network. The artificial neural network is explained and is applied to solve ordinary differential equations and eigenvalue problems. The method of Largaris, Likas and Fotiadis is extended to treat the problem of piecewise-constant potential problems in quantum mechanics.
