Relation between Poisson and Schrödinger equations

2012 American Journal of Physics  
The relation between the Poisson and Schr\"odinger equation in one dimension is obtained through a simple transformation. It is pointed out that this analogy between both equations can be only applied for potentials that involve a combination of attractive and repulsive delta function potentials. This relationship enables us to use elementary electrostatic results to find the exact solution of the associated quantum bound state problem in one dimension. Particularly, the result shows that it is
