Some consequences There are a few good reasons why the dependence in the solution is on , and : These are all dimensionless numbers, and mathematical relations can never depend on parameters that have a dimension! For the case of the even solutions, the ones with , we find that the number of bound states is determined by how many times we can fit into . Since is proportional to (the square root) of , we find that increasing increases the number bound

Unformatted text preview: states, and the same happens when we increase the width . Rewriting slightly we find that the governing parameter is , so that a factor of two change in is the same as a factor four change in . If we put the two sets of solutions on top of one another we see that after every even solution we get an odd solution, and vice versa. There is always at least one solution (the lowest even one), but the first odd solution only occurs when...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
