- Homework Statement
- Evaluate the commutator [π₯(π/ππ¦), π¦(π/ππ₯)] by applying the operators to an arbitrary

function π(π₯,π¦).

- Relevant Equations
- [A , B] = AB - BA

Hello,

In QM class this morning my Prof claimed that the commutator [π₯(π/ππ¦), π¦(π/ππ₯)] = 0.

However, my classmate and I arrived at x(d/dx) - y(d/dy).

Can someone explain how (or if) our professor is correct?
