This work is motivated by the desire to develop a method that allows for easy and accurate calculation of complex resonances of a one-dimensional Schrödinger's equation whose potential is a low-energy well surrounded by a thick barrier. The resonance is calculated as a perturbation of the bound state associated with a barrier of infinite thickness. We show that the corrector to the bound-state energy is exponentially small in the barrier thickness. A simple computational strategy that exploits this smallness is devised and numerically verified to be very accurate. We also provide a study of high-frequency resonances and show how they can be approximated. Numerical examples are given to illustrate the main ideas in this work.
