Title: Asymptotic expansions of Mathieu functions in wave mechanics

Abstract

Solutions of the radial Schroedinger equation containing a polarization potential r/sup -4/ are expanded in a form appropriate for large values of r. These expansions of the Mathieu functions are used in association with the numerical solution of the Schroedinger equation to impose the asymptotic boundary condition in the case of bound states, and to extract phase shifts in the case of scattering states.
