Unformatted text preview: The quantum wavefunctions (x,t) must satisfy several mathematical conditions to ensure that it represents a possible physical stae. These conditions are called Born conditions and three of them are listed on Engel p. 38: (1) (x,t) be single-valued, (2) (x,t) be continuous, and (3) (x,t) be normalizable (for examples, cannot be infinite). Which of the following are well-behaved over the indicated interval? For those which are NOT, please clearly explain why they are not. To alleviate your workload, just do (c),(d),(e)....
