Exact Solution of the Position-Dependent Mass Schrödinger Equation with the Completely Positive Oscillator-Shaped Quantum Well Potential

   Abstract. Two exactly-solvable confined models of the completely positive oscillator-shaped quantum well are proposed. Exact solutions of the position-dependent mass Schrödinger equation corresponding to the proposed quantum well potentials are presented. It is shown that the discrete energy spectrum expressions of both models depend on certain positive confinement parameters. The spectrum exhibits positive equidistant behavior for the model confined only with one infinitely high wall and nonequidistant behavior for the model confined with the infinitely high wall from both sides. Wavefunctions of the stationary states of the models under construction are expressed through the Laguerre and Jacobi polynomials. In general, the Jacobi polynomials appearing in wavefunctions depend on parameters $a$ and $b$, but the Laguerre polynomials depend only on the parameter $a$. Some limits and special cases of the constructed models are discussed.

Key words: Completely positive quantum well, Position-dependent mass, Exact solution, Laguerre and Jacobi polynomials.
