Supersymmetry and the ladder operator technique in quantum mechanics: The radial Schrödinger equation

Abstract

Using the ladder operator technique, a construction of the supersymmetric Hamiltonian is proposed. We show that the accidental degeneracies associated with the Coulomb and isotropic oscillator problems may be attributed to the existence of a supersymmetry of the Hamiltonians.
