Simple Problems in One Dimension

  • R. Shankar


Now that the postulates have been stated and explained, it is all over but for the applications. We begin with the simplest class of problems----concerning a single particle in one dimension. Although these one-dimensional problems are somewhat artificial, they contain most of the features of three-dimensional quantum mechanics but little of its complexity. One problem we will not discuss in this chapter is that of the harmonic oscillator. This problem is so important that a separate chapter has been devoted to its study.
