Bryn Mawr Physics 302- Advanced Quantum Mechanics - 2010
Due: Friday, Mar. 26 at 10 am.
Reading: If you’ve not already done so, finish Chapter 5 of Townsend
Select a final project, and clear it with me.
4.9 Hints: Start with (4.41), and, following Townsend, assume that the rapidly oscillating terms can be ignored. Then show that . You should recognize that this has the same form as the DEQ for a damped harmonic oscillator, so you can immediately use the solution for that problem, with appropriate substitutions. Make use of the initial condition , and then normalize.
5.1 Omit the last sentence (“Examine your results…”). Be sure you read 5.2 before doing this problem.
