Continuous Spectra

  • Jochen Pade
Part of the Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics book series (ULNP)


So far, we have excluded continuous spectra from the discussion, e.g. by placing our quantum object between infinitely high potential walls, thus discretizing the energy spectrum. The fact that we adopted this limitation had less to do with physical reasons, but rather almost exclusively with mathematical ones.
