We apply the concept of ladder operators in quantum oscillators to illustrate its usefulness and power in solving some problems.

We investigate the properties of a simple quantum system consisting of a particle in a one-dimensional infinite square well potential.
We show sample calculations involving functions of matrices using the Taylor Series expansions.
by HENRILEN A. CUBIO Finding the eigenvectors and eigenvalues of the state of a quantum system is one of the most important concepts in quantum mechanics. And it is here where many students get confused. In order to learn this by heart, one has to do several exercises. There are many ways that can be […]
by MARYJANE D. MADULARA In an earlier post about the properties of Hermitian operators, it was noted that quantum operators of physical significance are Hermitian by type. Here we discuss more fully about Hermitian matrices. A n x n matrix is Hermitian if it is equal to its corresponding adjoint matrix. Now, for each Hermitian […]
