Comments to the question (v2): Normally we assume that $-\infty< x_1 < x_2<\infty$ are the turning points in the 1D potential well. This means $$\forall x\in ]x_1,x_2[:~~ E ~>~ V(x).$$ Hence OP's third last equation $$0 ~<~ \int_{x_1}^{x_2}{dx\ \sqrt{2m(E-V(x))}} ~=~ -\frac{\pi}{2}\hbar~<~0$$ can never be fulfilled. The correct WKB ...

In asymptotic region (high energy $s\rightarrow \infty$ and small momentum transfer $t$), the eikonal approximation means we drop out any diagram that has connections between internal lines; or it is corresponding to taking infinite ladder and cross-ladder Feynman's diagrams (including tree-level diagrams) in calculation of scattering amplitude and ...

A classical turning point is a point at which the system's total energy $E$ equals the potential energy $V.$ Past this point, i.e. for $E<V$ the potential is greater than the total energy, such cases we denote as classically forbidden regions, because from a purely classical point of view, the system has 0 chance of being in a state where its potential ...
