dx (“é—Ill!"— W’hieh is the same as asking: Ill! The latter equality can be proven by using Integration by Parts
with: u = 1p and v = 111*, together with the fact that both Lp and of“ are
zero at x = iroo. Therefore, the momentum operator IS Hermitian. I will be happy to show the derivation to any interestedindividuals. ...
