11 - 2 5.73 Lecture #11 updated 10/1/02 11:00 AM Today: eigenvalues of a matrix – what are they? how do we get them? (secular equation). Why do we need them? eigenvectors – how do we get them? Arbitrary V(x) in Harmonic Oscillator Basis Set (DVR) What is the connection between the Schrödinger and Heisenberg representations? ψψ δ ii xx x () , = = 00 eigenfunction of x with eigenvalue x 0 Using this formulation for ψ i (x), you can go freely (and rigorously) between the Schrödinger and Heisenberg approaches. 1 == k kk d x
