The High Order Method with Discrete TBCs for Solving the Cauchy Problem for the 1D Schrὅdinger Equation

We consider the Cauchy problem for the 1D generalized Schrὅdinger equation on the whole axis. To solve it, any order finite element in space and the Crank-Nicolson in time method with the discrete transpa\-rent boundary conditions (TBCs) has recently been constructed. Now we engage the global Richardson extrapolation in time to derive the high order method both with respect to space and time steps. To study its properties, we comment on its stability and give results of numerical experiments and enlarged practical error analysis for three typical examples. Unlike most common 2nd order (in either space or time step) methods, the proposed method is able to provide high precision results in the uniform norm by using adequate computational costs. It works even in the case of discontinuous potentials and non-smooth solutions far beyond the scope of its standard theory. Comparing our results to the previous ones, we obtain \textit{much more} accurate results using much less amount of both elements and time steps.
