Physics 591 - Homework Set # 6 Due: Monday, October 4, 5 pm 1. In class we proved a theorem stating that one-dimensional bound state problems are not degenerate. However, in another class we discussed the case of the particle that slides without friction along a ring of circumference a. In that example we found that all energy levels were doubly
