|Title:||Exactly solvable nonlinear eigenvalue problems||Authors:||Wang, QH||Issue Date:||25-Oct-2021||Publisher:||IOP Publishing||Citation:||Wang, QH (2021-10-25). Exactly solvable nonlinear eigenvalue problems. Journal of Physics: Conference Series 2038 (1) : 012025-012025.

A nonlinear eigenvalue is defined as the initial condition which gives rise a separatrix solution. A semi-transcendental equation can be integrated once to a first order nonlinear equation, e.g., the Ricatti equation. It is shown that the nonlinear eigenvalue problems of these semi-transcendental equations are equivalent to linear eigenvalue problems. They share the exactly same eigenvalues. The eigensolutions in the two problems are closely related. The nonlinear eigenvalue problem equivalent to the (half) harmonic oscillator in quantum mechanics is solved exactly. This is the first solvable nonlinear eigenvalue problem. The nonlinear eigenvalue problems of some extended equations are also studied.||Source Title:||Journal of Physics: Conference Series||URI:||https://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/226613||ISSN:||1742-6588
