In this paper, we discuss numerical approximation of the eigenvalues of the one-dimensional radial Schršodinger equation
posed on a semi-infinite interval. The original problem is first transformed to one defined on a finite domain by
applying suitable change of the independent variable. The eigenvalue problem for the resulting differential operator is
then approximated by a generalized algebraic eigenvalue problem arising after discretization of the analytical problem
by the matrix method based on high order finite difference schemes. Numerical experiments illustrate the performance of the approach.
