Hi guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

probably that's the wrong forum, but I was just curious about

the plot (Figure 1 Chapter XI A./1. page 1097 / Volume II) of the eigenvalues

[tex]E(\lambda)[/tex].

If I calculate them they are supposed to be straight lines with positive or

negative slope i.e.:

[tex]E(\lambda) = E_n^0 + \lambda \epsilon_1^j[/tex]

in first order perturbation theory.

Am I missing s.th. or are these curves just ment to be realistic measurement curves

(and if so why isn't there any hint in the text) ?
