The polynomial solution of the Schrodinger equation for the Pseudoharmonic potential is found for any arbitrary angular momentum l. The exact bound-state energy eigenvalues and the corresponding eigenfunctions are analytically calculated. The energy states for several diatomic molecular systems are calculated numerically for various principal and angular quantum numbers. By a proper transformation, this problem is also solved very simply by using the known eigensolutions of anharmonic oscillator potential. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
