Eigen functions of the linear operator L

  1. Jul 10, 2008 #1
    Hi,
    I am looking for eigen functions of the linear operator L defined by

    [tex]L=(-2i(\nablaf).\nabla -i\nabla^2f +(\nablaf)^2)[/tex]

    and here f is an abitary function of x,y,z

    Re: Eigenfunction

    Sorry first (failed) attempt at latex.
    L = -2i(grad(f)).grad -i(grad^2(f)) + (grad(f))^2

    grad^2 is the laplacian of f
