Unformatted text preview: 10 CHAPTER 2. MATHEMATICAL PREREQUISITES the following multiples of sin( x ) are all normalized: sin( x ) / , (for = 0), sin( x ) / , (for = ), and i sin( x ) / , (for = / 2). Answer: A multiple of sin( x ) means c sin( x ), where c is some complex constant, so the magnitude is || c sin( x ) || = radicalBig ( c sin( x ) | c sin( x ) ) = radicalBigg integraldisplay 2 ( c sin( x )) ( c sin( x )) d x You can always write c as | c | e i where is some real angle, and then you get for the norm: || c sin( x ) || = radicalBigg integraldisplay 2 ( | c | e i sin( x )) ( | c | e i sin( x )) d x = radicalBigg integraldisplay 2 | c | 2 sin 2 ( x ) d x = | c | So for the multiple to be normalized, the magnitude of c must be | c | = 1 / , but the angle can be arbitrary. 2.3.7 Solution dot-g Question: Show that the functions e 4i x and e 6i x are an orthonormal set on the interval x 1. Answer: You need to show that both functions are normalized, vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle e 4i x vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle = 1 and vextendsingle vextendsingle...
