The Fractional Schrödinger Equation with the Generalized Woods-Saxon Potential

Keywords: generalized Fractional derivative, Schrödinger equation, Nikiforov-Uvarov method, Woods-Saxon potential


The bound state energy eigenvalues and the corresponding eigenfunctions of the generalized Woods-Saxon potential reported in [Phys. Rev. C, 72, 027001 (2005)] is extended to the fractional forms using the generalized fractional derivative and the fractional Nikiforov-Uvarov (NU) technique. Analytical solutions of bound states of the Schrodinger equation for the present potential are obtained in the terms of fractional Jacobi polynomials. It is demonstrated that the classical results are a special case of the present results at α=β=1. Therefore, the present results play important role in molecular chemistry and nuclear physics.
