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 ).

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 - - =...
