    • Abstract


      In this paper, we obtain approximate bound-state solutions of $N$-dimensional time-independent fractional Schrödinger equation for the generalised pseudoharmonic potential which has the form $V(r^{\alpha}) = a_{1}r^{2\alpha} + (a_{2}/r^{2\alpha}) + a_{3}$. Here $\alpha$ (0 < $\alpha$ < 1) acts like a fractional parameter for the space variable $r$. The entire study consists of the Jumarie-type fractional derivative and the elegance of Laplace transform. As a result, we can successfully express the approximate bound-state solution in terms of Mittag–Leffler function and fractionally defined confluent hypergeometric function. Our study may be treated as a generalisation of all previous workscarried out on this topic when $\alpha = 1$ and $N$ arbitrary. We provide numerical result of energy eigenvalues and eigenfunctions for a typical diatomic molecule for different α close to unity. Finally, we try to correlate our work with a Cornell potential model which corresponds to $\alpha = 1/2$ with $a_{3} = 0$ and predicts the approximate mass spectra of quarkonia.
