Abstract.

In this study, the solution of the Schrödinger equation by a method developed by Nikiforov and Uvarov which is not based on the manipulation of formal power series has been schematically presented. The method gives elegant, easy and exact solutions of the Schrödinger equation. In order to demonstrate the applications of the method, solutions of the Schrödinger equation for the well-known pseudo-harmonic oscillator and a new symmetrical potential proposed by the authors are given. The concrete energy spectra and corresponding wave functions are obtained. The superiority and the limitations of the method compared to other methods have also been emphasized.
