The artificial boundary method is used to reformulate the time fractional Schrödinger equation on the real line as a bounded problem with exact artificial boundary conditions. The problem appeared is solved by a numerical method employing the L1-formula for the Caputo derivative and finite differences for spatial derivatives. The convergence of the method studied and optimal error estimates in a special metric are obtained. The technique developed here can be also applied to study the convergence of approximation methods for standard Schrödinger equation.
