Finding eigenvalue

  1. Feb 21, 2010 #1
    Hi all, any help greatly appreciated.

    Please bear in mind that i have no experience in any Physics and genuinly have no idea how to these questions.

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    An eigenfunction of the operator d^2/dx^2 is ψ = e^2x. Find the corresponding eigenvalue.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
