Griﬃths’ Problem 4.33
. This is an example of a problem with a timedependent
Hamiltonian. In such a case the Hamiltonian has instantaneous eigenstates that change
continuously in time; ﬁnding its eigenstates and eigenvalues is not very useful in determining
the timedependence of the state vector (except under socalled
adiabatic
conditions). In
order to ﬁnd the state vector as a function of time one should solve the diﬀerential equations
