Thus, the bound state solution of the radial wave equation now reads
The only issue that is left for discussion in this section is that the solutions of the radial wave equation [{[g.sub.n](r)}.sup.N.sub.n=0], where N denotes the maximum number in which we get bound states, are not orthogonal!
First we write down the time-independent gravitational Schrodinger radial wave equation in accordance with Rubcic & Rubcic [3]:
