About hamilton operators

    why i[tex]\hbar[/tex]([tex]\partial[/tex]/[tex]\partial[/tex]t+i[tex]\Omega[/tex])=i[tex]\hbar[/tex]exp(-i[tex]\Omega[/tex]t)[tex]\partial[/tex]/[tex]\partial[/tex]texp(i[tex]\Omega[/tex]t)

    In the RHS you have something that resembles the unitary trasformation of an operator. Where did you get the equation from ?

    [tex]i\hbar(\frac{d}{dt}+ i\Omega) = i\hbar(exp(-i \Omega t) \frac{d}{dt} exp(i \Omega t) [/tex]

    Well if exp(iOt) is your wavefunction, the RHS is just [tex]i\hbar(i \Omega )[/tex]

    are you sure this equation is right? Looks like momentum operator, not hamilton.
