On recurrence relations for radial wave functions for the N-th dimensional oscillators and hydrogenlike atoms: analytical and numerical study

R. Álvarez-Nodarse, J. L. Cardoso, and N. R. Quintero


Using a general procedure for finding recurrence relations for hypergeometric functions and polynomials introduced by Cardoso et al. [J. Phys. A, 36 (2003), pp. 2055-2068] we obtain some new recurrence relations for the radial wave functions of the $N$-th dimensional isotropic harmonic oscillators as well as the hydrogenlike atoms. A numerical analysis of such recurrences is also presented.
