applied Wigner- transform techniques to the analysis of finite difference methods for Schrodinger equation with small s andzero far-field boundary conditions ( us ( x, t ) decays to zero sufficiently fast as x c oe [1, 2, 5]), they obtainedsharp conditions on the spatial-temporal grid whichguaranteed convergence for values of all observables as Plank constant s tended to zero.
