I'm checking to see if the momentum operator is Hermitian. Griffiths has the solution worked out, I'm just not following the integration by parts.
int(u dv) = uv - int(v du)
The Attempt at a Solution
I've attached an image of my work.
It seems there should be an additional 'dx' with my 'v' term, but then the 'uv' portion would have a 'dx', which wouldn't make much sense to me.
Thanks for your time.
