comment Uncertainty Principle for a Totally Localized Particle
But what about a macroscopic object(and that is why I'm confused)? For example, a stone. Common sense would tell us it can be totally localized and momentum be zero. Is it because the Planck constant is too small so we cannot observe the spreading?

comment About the energy with the repulsive potential
Thanks, but how to see there is no solution for $E=0$ more clearly? Actually I have thought that my numerical solution tends to a solution with $E=0$.

comment About the energy with the repulsive potential
I think your answer is clear and convincing. And two more questions(maybe silly), does "all $E$ are allowed" imply that $E$ can be very large(even larger than $mc^2$)? And as my numerical result shows that $E$ tends to $0$ when I try to find a bound state, is it correct to say that bound state exists for $E=0$?

comment About the energy with the repulsive potential
I'm interested in the "ground state", if it exists. My numerical procedure tries to find the minimum energy.
