My exponent is good enough for approximating the energy so that it gives a
good starting guess for a numerical algorithm. I fitted the ground state
and the first 69 excited states and got this number for the exponent,
repeatedly and to 10-12 places of accuracy for different values of mu, hbar,
and mass, I doubt that is a coincidence.
I am studying the Variational paper "Post-Gaussian variational method for
quantum anharmonic oscillator" by Akihiro Ogura.
This is a very curious thing.
I will eventually give up or get lucky.
