Isochronous Curiosities: Classical and Quantum
Your study of classical mechanics usually begins with the analysis of a particle of mass m moving in one dimension under the action of a potential V(x). This is probably the simplest problem in classical mechanics and possibly the whole of physics. As we shall see, this apparent simplicity is rather deceptive and this problem hides some interesting surprises .
