Abstract The Galerkin spectral method can be used for approximate calculation of eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of unidimensional Schroedinger-like equations such as the Wheeler–DeWitt equation. The criteria most commonly employed for checking the accuracy of results is the conservation of norm of the wave function, but some other criteria might be used, such as the orthogonality of eigenfunctions and the variation of the spectrum with varying computational parameters, e.g. the number of basis functio...
