Let $V(x) = −u \delta(x) - v \delta(x − a)$ where $u, v > 0$ correspond to a potential with two $\delta$ wells. Let $v > u$. If $a$ is very large, there is certainly a bound state: the particle sits in the $\delta$-well. As $a$ decreases to a certain critical value, the bound state disappears. I need help finding that value.
My idea was: Before the bound state disappears, its energy approaches $0$. I'm trying to assume that the energy $E$ is a very small negative number, solve the Schrodinger equation, and find the suitable value of $a$, but I'm having trouble doing this.
Would someone be able to help me with this problem?
