Two Simple Solutions of the Schrödinger Equation

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


This chapter deals with the solutions of the SEq for two simple but important one-dimensional systems. First, we consider the infinite potential well as a simple model of a bounded system, then force-free unlimited motion as a simple model of an unbounded system. Here, ‘bounded motion’ means basically that the system is confined to a finite region, in contrast to unlimited motion.
