Approximate Solutions of KleinGordon Equation with Kratzer Potential
Abstract
Approximate solutions of the Ddimensional KleinGordon equation are obtained for the scalar and vector general Kratzer potential for any by using the ansatz method. The energy behavior is numerically discussed.
1. Introduction
The Kratzer potential is amongst the most attractive physical potentials as it contains a degeneracyremoving inverse square term besides the common Coulomb term. It appears in a wide class of physical and chemical sciences including the atomic and molecular physics providing quite motivating results [1–7]. When we deal with this potential within the framework of Schrödinger equation, the problem is simply solved via the analogy with familiar example of 3dimesnional Coulomb Hamiltonian or many other techniques including series expansions, supersymmetry quantum mechanics (SUSY) [8–10], the NikiforovUvarov (NU) [11], point canonical transformation (PCT) [12–14], and so forth. Such investigations have been done by many authors in the annals of wave equations [15–24]. The problem just arises when we intend to study the problem via the KleinGordon (KG) equation. This is because we have to deal with an equivalent potential which includes Coulomb, inverse square, inverse cubic and inverse quadric terms. Until now, no exact analytical solution has been reported for the problem. Within the present study, we study the problem via an Ansatz approach proposed by Dong [25] and numerically report the results.
2. DDimensions KleinGordon Equation
The radial KleinGordon equation for a spherically symmetric potential in Ddimensions is For the scalar and vector potentials we choose where denotes the hyperradius and , , , and are constant coefficients. For the mass, instead of constant one, we consider a positiondependent mass of the form The transformation , after inserting (2.2) brings (2.1) into the form Choosing Equation (2.4) is more neatly written as The Schrödinger analogue of this problem has been analyzed by Dong [25]. We choose [25] where Substitution of (2.9), (2.8), and (2.7) in (2.4), after equating the corresponding coefficients on both sides, gives From (2.5) and (2.10), the energy of the nodeless state is obtained as with its corresponding eigenfunction being obtained by substitution of (2.8), (2.9), and (2.10) in (2.7) as In Table 1, we have reported the eigenvalues for s and s. Repeating the same procedure for the first node, the eigenvalues are found as where And the corresponding eigenfunction is Also in Table 2, as well as Figures 1 and 2, we have reported the energy behavior for various conditions. The figures well illustrate the symmetries of energy relation.


3. Conclusion
Approximate analytical solutions of KleinGordon equation are reported for the Kratzer potential using the Ansatz method. The behavior of energy eigenvalues on dimension and quantum numbers is numerically calculated. The results are applicable to some branches of physics, particularly atomic, molecular, and chemical physics, where a spin0 system is being investigated.
