Reading from http://quantummechanics.ucsd.edu/ph130a/130_notes/node151.html It says: This means that the solutions separate into even parity and odd parity states. We could have guessed this from ...
I think I understand that the solution to the Schrodinger equation for the SHO is based on the Hermite polynomials (and the Guassian function). The solution set of all even Hermite polynomials are a ...
Is it possible for a particle trapped in a 1D finite potential well to evolve from a even state to an odd state and vice-versa? Why?
I am reading up on the Schrödinger equation and I quote: Because the potential is symmetric under $x\to-x$, we expect that there will be solutions of definite parity. Could someone kindly ...
