Homework Help: Am I missing something?

  1. Apr 12, 2005 #1
    For the following:

    [tex]
    \begin{gather*}
    \hat{\Omega} = \frac{d}{d\theta}sin \theta \frac{d}{d\theta}\\function = e^{i\theta}
    \end{gather*}
    [/tex]

    Use the operator on the function and is it an eigenfunction of [itex]\hat{\Omega}[/itex]?

    Thanks. I don't think it is.

    There is also another problem with [itex]\hat{\Omega} = \frac{d^2}{dx^2} - 4x^2[/itex]. I don't think this is an eigenfunction either.

    It isn't an eigenfunction for any of he 2 op-s.

    Daniel.
