(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

particle of mass m is subjected to antisymmetric delta-function potential V(x) =V'Delta(x+a)-V'Delta(x-a) where V'>0

Show that there is only one bound state, and find its energy

2. Relevant equations

Assuming free particle eqn for x<-a for particle incident from -ve infinity,

psi(x)=Acos(kx)+Bsin(kx) k=(2mE*(4pi)sqrd/(h)sqrd)^1/2

3. The attempt at a solution

I know how to go about the solution for a regular square potential. How does one account for the delta function nature of this potential well?
