Approximate Solutions to Quantum Problems
The previous chapters may have left the (erroneous) impression that there is always an exact (and elegant) mathematical solution for every problem in quantum mechanics. In most cases there is not. One must resort to makeshift approximations, numerical solutions or combinations of both. In this chapter we discuss three approximate methods that are frequently applied.
