Abstract We discuss the automatic solution of the multichannel Schrödinger equation. The proposed approach is based on the use of a CP method for which the step size is not restricted by the oscillations in the solution. Moreover, this CP method turns out to form a natural scheme for the integration of the Riccati differential equation which arises when introducing the (inverse) logarithmic derivative. A new Prüfer type mechanism which derives all the required information from the propagation of the i...
