Properties of Quantum Oscillators 1

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

by SIMON JUDE BURGOS In this post we investigate the properties of a quantum oscillator by using an algebraic tool in quantum mechanics called ‘ladder operators’. Using the ladder operator it becomes easy to find the following properties for a quantum oscillator in a given energy level:  the average position and momentum and the square […]

Sticky: Basics of Linear Vector Spaces

Sunday, January 18th, 2009

by CARIEL O. MONTALBAN In quantum mechanics, I have learned that the wavefunctions, , reside in Hilbert’s space.  What is Hilbert’s space? I guess to answer this question requires exploring the basic  properties of Hilbert’s space. Hilbert’s space is a linear vector space whose elements, entities or components obey certain rules or axioms.  This means […]
