Phys 402 Spring 2009 Homework 3 Due Friday, February 20, 2009 @ 9 AM 1. Griffiths, 2 nd Edition, Problem 6.1 First-order perturbation theory with a delta-function in an infinite square well. Eigen-energy and ground state eigenfunction. 2. Griffiths, 2 nd Edition, Problem 6.4 (a) only Second-order perturbation theory for the above. Trick: Try writing 2 2 1 m n as m n B m n A + + to help sum the infinite series. 3. Griffiths, 2 nd Edition, Problem 6.5 (a) only Second-order perturbation theory for the charged harmonic oscillator in an electric field. 4. Griffiths, 2 nd Edition, Problem 6.11 Fine Structure constant Extra Credit #4 Degenerate Perturbation Theory Stark Effect in Hydrogen. In 1913 Stark observed a splitting of the Hydrogen Balmer series lines by applying an electric field E = 100,000 V/cm. a) Write down the perturbing Hamiltonian H’ for the electron. Neglect spin in
