Coordinate space matrix elements <x|H|x'>. what are these?

  1. Oct 15, 2014 #1
    I'm asked to figure out how the so-called "coordinate space matrix elements" relate to "momentum space matrix elements <p|H|p'> but I don't understand what they are.

    any idea on how <x|H|x'> is defined?

    thanks in advance.
