V = 50 HE -x - L 50 H- + -x L 8x, -, <D Ü Graphcs Ü It s bascally quadratc around zero and s very steep. One may guess that the harmonc oscllator s a pretty good approxmaton. Intal guess 8x, 0, 3<D 50 x - 50 x If we try to dentfy the frst term wth the harmonc oscllator potental ÅÅÅÅ m w x, we fnd w = 0 because m =. Then one may hope that t would gve the ground-state energy ÅÅÅÅ w = 5. However, ths hope s not qute fulflled.

Lnear tmes Gaussan One way to mprove t further s the followng. Note that the potental s not party symmetrc, and hence the groundstate wavefuncton s not expected to be an even functon. Because the potental s lower on the rght, we expect the wave functon s skewed towards the rght.

Obvously, there are many ways to mprove Gaussan. I hope you found one successfully. The analytc soluton Ths problem s actually a specal case of the Morse potental V = D HE -a u - L D H- + -a u L

5 HW0.nb 5 Ths potental s a form of the nter-atomc potental n datomc molecules proposed by P.M. Morse, Phys. Rev. 34, 57 (99). The varable u s the dstance between two atoms mnus ts equlbrum dstance u = r - r 0. The Schrödnger equaton can be solved analytcally. Expandng t around the mnmum, 8u, 0, 4<D a D u - a 3 D u ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ a4 D u Harmonc oscllator approxmaton gves w = "########### a D ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ. The correct energy egenvalues are known to be m E n = whn + ÅÅÅÅ L - a ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ m Hn + ÅÅÅÅ L, where the second term s called the anharmoncanharmonc correcton. For large n, the second term wll domnate and the energy appears to become negatve. Clearly, the bound state spectrum does not go forever, and ends at a certan value of n, qute dfferent from the harmonc oscllator. But ths s expcted because the potental energy asymptotes to D for u Ø + and hence states for E > D must be unbound and hence have a contnuous spectrum. The ground-state wave functon s known to have the form -d E-a u -b a uê y = E E -d -a u - ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ a b u where b = d -, d = è!!!!!!!!!!!! D m ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ. Let us see that t satsfes the Schrödnger equaton. a I- ÅÅÅÅÅÅ m SmplfyA 8u, <D + D HE-a u - L ym ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ y è!!! a H-4 è!!!!!!!

For u Ø, the potental asymptotes to a constant D, and hence the wave functon must damp exponentally e -k u wth k = è!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! m» E» ë. For u Ø -, the potental rses extremely steeply as D e - a u. It suggests that the energy egenvalue becomes quckly rrelevant, and the behavor of the wave functon must be gven purely by the rsng behavor of the potental. By droppng the energy egenvalue and lookng at the Schrödnger equaton, - ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ d y ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ + D e - a u y = 0, m d u and change the varable to y = e -a u, we fnd - ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ m I d y ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ + ÅÅÅÅ ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ d y d y y d y M + D y = 0. The second term n the parentheses s neglble for y Ø. Therefore the wave functon has the behavor y e -è!!!!!!!!!!! m D yê a. Combnng the behavor on both ends, the wave functon has precsely the exact form gven above. Ths s the lesson: the one-dmensonal potental problem s so smple that there are many ways to study the behavor of the wave functon. On the other hand, the real-world problem nvolves many more degrees of freedom. In many cases, the Hamltonan tself must be guessed.

Here, a è s the tme-reversed state of a, and b è s the tme-reversed state of b. In our case, the tme-reversed state has the opposte momentum. (If you worry about the helcty, both the momentum and the spn flp, and remans the same, namely left-handed.) However, the Hamltonan depends only on the magntude of the momentum and hence the oscllaton probabltes also depend only on the magntude of the momentum. Therefore PHb è Ø a è L = PHb Ø al. Choosng n e and n m of the same momenta to be the ntal and fnal states, we fnd that the tme reversal nvarance would predct PHn m Ø n e L = PHn e Ø n m L. The fact that the tme-reversal volaton requres d 0makes sense because the tme-reversal opeator nvolves the complex conjugaton, and d s the only complex parameter n the Hamltonan.
