(b) A hermitian operator A satisfies ( A | ) = ( | A ) . Which of the following operators are hermitian ? (a) i x + x 2 , on the space of square integrable functions L 2 ( R ). (b) x d dx x , on the space of square integrable functions L 2 ( R ). (c) 1 2 i 1 2 i 1 1 + i 1 1 i i , on the vector space C 3 . 2 . A mass m particle is in a one-dimensional box; inside it a step of height V starts at x = a/ 2. (a) Consider energies E < V . What are the solutions to Schrodingers energy eigenvalue equation for 0 x a/ 2 and a/ 2 x a , which have energy eigenfunction ( x ) = 0 for x = 0 and x = a ?...
