For degenerate perturbation theory, how do we interpret the eigenvectors and eigenvalues of $\hat V$?

For the eigenvectors that are unmixed by the matrix $\hat V$, the eigenvalues are the energy corrections of this eigenbasis. However, the eigenbasis tends to always be (as far as I'm aware) a linear ...

How to construct the matrix of Hamiltonians for a hexagonal lattice

For part of a project I need to solve the time-independent Schrödinger equation, $\mathbf H\Psi = E\Psi$ (where $\mathbf H$ is the matrix with elements $\langle\Psi_i|H|\Psi_j\rangle$, and $\mathbf S$ ...

Simultaneous diagonalization of Cartan generators of $SO(6)$

This question is naive but for some reason I'm not getting the expected result. The generators of $SO(6)$ can be written in this way: $$(J_{ab})_{cd}=i(\delta_{ac}\delta_{bd}-\delta_{ad}\delta_{bc}),...

Finding the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of this operator

The operator $$\mathcal{\hat{G}} = (\xi - 1) \sum_{j=1}^N \int dk_j \; k_j \hat{a}^\dagger_j(k_j)\hat{a}_j(k_j),$$ is physically similar to the momentum operator in quantum mechanics. It has the ...

matrix elements of the electronic molecular Hamiltonian between a hartree product and a Slater determinant

This may belong in Chemistry, but I thought I might try my luck here first. In Szabo's book, an exercise requires a proof that = (N!)^(1/2) * given that |K(HP)> is the Hartree product wave ...
