Box normalizing

  1. May 16, 2010 #1
    What is box normalizing and why is it important in quantum mechanical problems such as the black body radiation?

    Any ideas? It seems box normalizing is done w/the wavefunction for a free particle to assume a finite box rather than infinite dimensions. Is that basically box normalizing? How is that helpful with the black body?
