Abstract

The Neumann series representation for the Bessel functions and Neumann functions is generalized for the regular and irregular solutions of the Kummer equation. This representation results in a convenient algorithm for the computation of a large family of special functions, e.g., most of the soluble cases of the Schrödinger equation, including complex energies or a complex (optical) potential.
