Quantum Mechanics II, Physics 4143: Assignment 3, Spring 2011. 1 : Griffiths’ Problem 4.33 . This is an example of a problem with a time-dependent 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 time-dependence of the state vector (except under so-called adiabatic conditions). In order to find the state vector as a function of time one should solve the differential equations
