Perturbation Theory: Quantum Oscillator Problem

Monday, April 20th, 2009

by ANCELIE C. ROSALES In quantum mechanics, the perturbation theory is a very important mathematical tool which is used to approximate physical quantities that describe complicated quantum systems based on our knowledge on the simpler ones. It tells us how to correct the solutions to the unperturbed or undisturbed problem to approximately account for the […]

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 […]
