Stability of the inverse problem for the radial schrödinger equation with an increasing potential

  • 17 Accesses


It is shown that a potential reconstructed from a spectral function is stable with respect to an error in the determination of the spectral function at finite energies. The absence of spectral data at high energies leads to the consequence that at finite distances the term in the potential, averaged over the spatial period of the Compton wave length, is stable.
