Reanalysis of an open problem associated with the fractional Schrödinger equation

Reanalysis of an open problem associated with the fractional Schrödinger equation It was recently shown that there are some difficulties in the solution method proposed by Laskin for obtaining the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of the one-dimensional time-independent fractional Schrödinger equation with an infinite potential well encountered in quantum mechanics. In fact, this problem is still open. We propose a new fractional approach that allows overcoming the limitations of some previously introduced strategies. In deriving the solution, we use a method based on the eigenfunction of the Weyl fractional derivative. We obtain a solution suitable for computations in a closed form in terms of Mittag–Leffler functions and fractional trigonometric functions. It is a simple extension of the results previously obtained by Laskin et al. Theoretical and Mathematical Physics Springer Journals
