schrodinger wave equation
Schrodinger Wave Equation
  • Schrodinger equation is the first (and easiest)
  • works for non-relativistic spin-less particles (spin added ad-hoc)
  • guess at form: conserve energy, well-behaved, predictive, consistent with l=h/p
  • free particle waves

P460 - Sch. wave eqn.

schrodinger wave equation2
Schrodinger Wave Equation
  • kinetic + potential = “total” energy K + U = E
  • with operator form for momentum and K gives

Giving 1D time-dependent SE

For 3D:

P460 - Sch. wave eqn.

operators
Operators
  • Operators transform one function to another. Some operators have eigenvalues and eigenfunctions

Only some functions are eigenfunctions.

Only some values are eigenvalues

In x-space or t-space let p or E be represented by the

operator whose eigenvalues are p or E

P460 - Sch. wave eqn.

Example

No forces. V=0 solve Schr. Eq

Find average values

P460 - Sch. wave eqn.

solving schrodinger equation
Solving Schrodinger Equation
  • If V(x,t)=v(x) than can separate variables

G is separation constant valid any x or t

Gives 2 ordinary diff. Eqns.

P460 - Sch. wave eqn.

slide8

G=E if 2 energy states, interference/oscillation

1D time

independent

Scrod. Eqn.

Solve: know U(x) and boundary conditions

want mathematically well-behaved.

No discontinuities. Usually

except if V=0 or y =0

in certain regions

P460 - Sch. wave eqn.

solutions to schrod eqn
Solutions to Schrod Eqn
  • Gives energy eigenvalues and eigenfunctions (wave functions). These are quantum states.
  • Linear combinationsof eigenfunctions are also solutions

P460 - Sch. wave eqn.

solutions to schrod eqn10
Solutions to Schrod Eqn
  • Linear combinationsof eigenfunctions are also solutions. Asuume two energies
  • assume know wave function at t=0
  • at later times the state can oscillate between the two states

P460 - Sch. wave eqn.

the normalization of a wave function doesn t change with time unless decays from griffiths
The normalization of a wave function doesn’t change with time (unless decays). From Griffiths:

Use S.E. to substitute for

J(x,t) is the probability current. Tells rate at which

probability is “flowing” past point x

substitute into integral and evaluate

The wave function must go to 0 at infinity and

so this is equal 0
