Unformatted text preview: Interpretation), quantum wavefunction needs to be normalized. Example Problem 2.8 (scanned below for your convenience) is a simple exercise. Please change “exp(-r)” to “exp(-3r)” . [2] Fourier series. The eigenfunctions of a Hermitian operator form a complete basis. For example, the eigenfunctions of the “particle in a box” Hamiltonian operator form a complete basis. This special basis set is also called “Fourier series”. Problems P2.27 (scanned below for your convenience). Please change “f(x)=x” to “f(x)=x 2 ” and “the first five coefficients” to “the first two coefficients” to lessen your workload (Hint: Engel 2.7)...
