(6 pts) ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 i E i di d C L i Li v E v Cv v dv d LC = = + 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 1 2 1 2 F F (b) Why is there a transform, similar to the Fourier transform, between v and i ? Write down that transform when C 0. (6 pts) We can see the exact analog between the ( x, k ) and ( v, i ), and therefore the Fourier transform between ( x, k ) can be directly applied to ( v, i ). Cv x Li k ; F ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29   = = dv jiv v f i F di jiv i F v f exp 2 exp , where we have used i as current, and 1 = j . (c) Write down the promoter and demoter expressions in v and d/dv , and then in i and d/di .

Does P commute with the Hamiltonian? (6 pts) 1 From the definition of the Hermitian operator, we can see that v i P = is not Hermitian as: ( 29   =...
