P460 - perturbation 1 Perturbation Theory Only a few QM systems that can be solved exactly: Hydrogen Atom(simplified), harmonic oscillator, infinite+finite well solve using perturbation theory which starts from a known solution and makes successive approx- imations start with time independent. V’(x)=V(x)+v(x) V(x) has solutions to the S.E. and so known eigenvalues and eigenfunctions let perturbation v(x) be small compared to V(x) ' ) ( / V of solutions a x V of ions eigenfunct l l nl n l = ψ ψ ψ As ψ l form complete set of states (linear algebra) Sometimes Einstein convention used. Implied sum if 2 of same index
