In solution is a superposition of an incoming incident wave (‰Â k x ) and an outgoing reflected wave (‰-Â k x ). Solutions to the equation inside of the barrier (0 § x § a) for E &lt; V0 are real exponentials and will in general be a superposition of a decay term (‰-q x ) and a growing term (‰q x ). Neither of these terms is zero a priori because there will be a reflected and transmitted contribution Our energy eigenstates satisfy the time-independent Schrödinger equation inside and outside the barrier —2 8 -2m „2 yHxL = E yHxL „ x2 Ch6ProblemSetKey.nb —2 „ 2 B- 2 m 2 + V0 F yHxL „x „2 „ x2 „...
