Nature of problem:
Analysis of models of large amplitude molecular vibration leads to a set of single variable bound state second order differential eigenvalue problems of quite varied form and satisfying a variety of boundary conditions. These equations cannot in general be solved analytically.

Solution method:
The renormalized Numerov method has been employed to solve a restricted class of eigenvalue equations. An extension has been implemented which applies to a wider class of equations and to a greater variety of boundary conditions.

Restrictions:
Zero-value or zero-gradient boundary conditions are considered, the one exception to this being for Legendre type equations for which a Frobenius expansion at one or more bounds is employed.

Running time:
Per eigenvalue/eigenfunction : 14 sec at 500 points, 26 sec at 1000 points.
