No operator which destroys information can have an inverse. I 1 = I . F 1 = multiplication by 1 /F ( x ), except where F ( x ) = 0. B 1 = multiplication by 3. has no inverse. G has no inverse. 3.4 Plug into the eigenvalue equation, getting e ( x + ) g ( x + ) = a e x g ( x ) where a is the eigenvalue. Using g ( x + ) = g ( x ), we get a = e . 3.11 x = ip h x x 2 a 2 2 x 2 = 1 2 a 2 + ip h x x 2 a 2 2 h p 2 i = h 2 Z  dx * 2 x 2 Using, as the book does, = ( x x ) /a , h p 2 i = h 2 a  A  2 Z  d e 2 / 2 1 2 a 2 p 2 h 2 ip a h + 2 4 a 2 ! 1 The i term will integrate to zero, as an odd function. The constant coef ficient terms can be evaluated directly, using...
