Unformatted text preview: 561, for a total of 595. 5.8 Matrix Formulation 5.8.1 Solution matfor-a Question: As a relatively simple example, work out the above ideas for the Q = 2 hydrogen molecule spatial states ψ S 1 = ψ l ψ r and ψ S 2 = ψ l ψ r . Write the matrix eigenvalue problem and identify the two eigenvalues and eigenvectors. Compare with the results of section 5.3. Assume that ψ l and ψ r have been slightly adjusted to be orthonormal. Then so are ψ S 1 and ψ S 2 orthonormal, since the various six-dimensional inner product integrals, like a ψ S 1 | ψ S 2 A ≡ a ψ l ψ r | ψ r ψ l A ≡...
