  • Abstract

In this paper, we construct a Crank-Nicolson finite volume element scheme and a two-grid decoupling algorithm for solving the time-dependent Schrödinger equation. Combining the idea of two-grid discretization, the decoupling algorithm involves solving a small coupling system on a coarse grid space and a decoupling system with two independent Poisson problems on a fine grid space, which can ensure the accuracy while the size of coarse grid is much coarser than that of fine grid. We further provide the optimal error estimate of these two schemes rigorously by using elliptic projection operator. Finally, numerical simulations are provided to verify the correctness of the theoretical analysis.
