    Length of an infinite square well?

    Actually, this is more of a general question relating to a homework problem I already did. I was given the initial wavefunction of a particle in an infinite square well: \Psi(x,0) = Ax if (0 \leq x \leq \frac{a}{2}), and =A(a-x) if (\frac{a}{2} \leq x \leq a) And of course \Psi(0,0) =...

    QM Value of an infinite sum

    hi, In the course of doing my quantum homework I ran into a bit of a snag. In one of my calculations I need to replace the sum from n = 1 to infinity of 1/n^2 (for odd n only) with its number value. My book instructs me to get the information from a table and actualy gives the value (for...
