Authors: J. Akande, D. K. K. Adjaï, L. H. Koudahoun, Y. J. F. Kpomahou, M. D. Monsia

In quantum mechanics, the wave function and energy are required for the complete characterization of fundamental properties of a physical system subject to a potential energy. It is proved in this work, the existence of a Schrödinger equation with position-dependent mass having the prolate spheroidal wave function as exact solution, resulting from a classical quadratic Liénard-type oscillator equation. This fact may allow the extension of the current one-dimensional model to three dimensions and increase the understanding of analytical features of quantum systems.
