On the Regularization in J-Matrix Methods

  • J. Broeckhove
  • V.S. Vasilevsky
  • F. Arickx
  • A.M. Sytcheva


We investigate the effects of the regularization procedure used in the J-Matrix method. We show that it influences the convergence, and propose an alternative regularization approach.We explicitly perform some model calculations to demonstrate the improvement.
