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 singlevalued, (2) (x,t) be continuous, and (3) (x,t) be normalizable (for examples, cannot be infinite). Which of the following are wellbehaved 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)....
