Eulerian Gaussian Beam Methods in Quantum Mechanics

Dr. Xu Yang

University of Wisconsin-Madison

Abstract: Gaussian beam is an effcient way for solving the high frequency wave equations asymptotically with solution being valid at caustics. Our new work is about developing a new Eulerian Gaussian beam method for solving the Schrodinger equation in the semiclassical regime with possible applications in quantum related topics. In the talk I will also briefly include the (standard) Lagrangian Gaussian beam formulation to make the Eulerian methods better understood.
