In the previous chapters, we have laid down the physical and mathematical foundations of QM, as well as some of the general consequences. We continue by analyzing some simple problems, which will aid us in becoming familiar with some of the techniques used in QM. In addition to its educational value, there is currently real interest in this subject due to the modern advances in microfabrication of semiconductors, which permit the design and control of essentially one-dimensional potentials [SA 84], [KH 84].
