This set of slides is from one of my courses in Computational Chemistry. It covers the one-dimensional solution of the Schrödinger equation using Numerov’s method. The material for this article was mainly taken from the excellent Levin textbook in the reference.

If you are interested in more details, please like it and subscribe to my website. This way, I will be motivated to add more of these contents.
