Find the energy spectrum of a system whose Hamiltonian is

H=Ho+H'=[-(planks const)^2/2m][d^2/dx^2]+.5m(omega)^2x^2+ax^3+bx^4

I gues my big question to begin is what exactly makes up the energy spectrum. I know the equation to the first and second order perturbations but Im not sure exactly what the energy spectrum entails. Please help.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

ive figured out that H'=ax^3+bx^4

and Ho==[-(planks const)^2/2m][d^2/dx^2]+.5m(omega)^2x^2

and lambda=1 which mean ita a full perturbation
