We apply the concept of ladder operators in quantum oscillators to illustrate its usefulness and power in solving some problems.
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 BEBELYN A. ROSALES Linear operators in quantum mechanics may be represented by matrices. A type of linear operator of importance is the so called Hermitian operator. An operator is Hermitian if each element is equal to its adjoint. Most quantum operators, for example the Hamiltonian of a system, belong to this type. Now linear […]
