Homework Help: Dirac delta spherical potential

  1. Jul 25, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Three-dimensional particle is placed in a Dirac delta potential:

    [tex]V = -aV_{0}\delta(r-a)[/tex]

    Find energy states and eigenfunctions for the angular quantum number [tex]l = 0[/tex].[/

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    It's not clear to me what boundary conditions will do in this case - is this analogous to 1D case?

    Same as in all central potential problems.
