Made title more descriptive. Language fixes.

Presumably the energy eigenstates are for a free particle?

@EduardoGuerrasValera I would encourage you to collect the plentiful useful information in this comment thread as a stand-alone answer, probably quoting the OP's comments throughout.

Yes, that is the theory. The hope is that they would have come away with a vastly damaged bow like the SS Arizona but would have remained afloat.

comment Different hamiltonians for quantum harmonic oscillator?
Well, all hamiltonians can be given a global energy shift upon quantization by adding a multiple of $ i (xp-px) $ before quantizing, which is essentially what you're doing.

comment Kepler's third law doesn't give earth's orbital period! Why?
How do you figure second order effects are exactly one order of magnitude smaller? Just curious.

@MSalters I would be interested in your explanation for the discrepancy.

comment Kepler's third law doesn't give earth's orbital period! Why?
@MSalters unless you are in a resonance regime where the contributions add up over many cycles. In general you can't tell whether that's the case and you need to explicitly check that the per-cycle contributions do cancel out before you rule out contributions at first order.

comment How trustworthy are numerically-obtained periodic solutions to the three body problem?
Thank you for your great answer. There is indeed a formal existence result which provides a rigorous proof of the existence of a periodic solution. Have a bounty! I was hoping that the bounty period would make people upvote this but for some reason they didn't :(.
