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)...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
