I am new to quantum physics. My question is how to write the Hamiltonian in dirac notation for 3 different states say a , b , c having same energy. I started with Eigenvaluee problem H|Psi> = E|psi> H = ? for state a? SO it means that indvdually H= E (|a><a|) for state a and for all three states i can write H= E (|a><a|+|b><b|+|c><c|) am i right?
