The link between the Milne phaseamplitude formulation and the semiclassical treatment of the wave equation is explored. An improved strategy for integrating the Milne equations is derived and illustrated with the doublewell, harmonicoscillator, and Coulomb potentials.

Keywords: wave equation, phase amplitude, semiclassical methods
