Solution of the Schrödinger Equation for Four Specific Problems

  • Rolf E. Hummel


At first we solve the Schrödinger equation for a simple but nevertheless very important case. We consider electrons which propagate freely, that is, in a potential free space in the positive x direction. The potential energy V is then zero and the Schrödinger equation (3.1) assumes the following form:
$$ \frac{{{d^2}\psi }}{{d{x^2}}} + \frac{{2m}}{{{\hbar ^2}}}E\psi = 0$$
