Unformatted text preview: 3.6. THE HARMONIC OSCILLATOR 35 √ The first polynomial within square brackets in the expression above is zero at x = ℓ/ 2 √ and x = −ℓ/ 2, producing the two vertical white lines along which there is zero probability of finding the particle. Similarly, the second polynomial within square brackets is zero at y = 0, producing the horizontal white line. Hence looking along the z -direction, you see the distribution: yT √ −ℓ/ 2 √ ℓ/ 2 E x Figure 3.4: Energy eigenfunction ψ213 . Seen from above, you would see four rows of three patches, as the third polynomial between brackets produces zero probability of finding the particle at z = − 3/2ℓ, z = 0, and z = 3/2ℓ, splitting the...
