Hi, I've been doing a QM problem to do with a potential barrier going from x = 0 to x = a. I need to work out an expression for the transmission coefficient T and have a horrible looking expression:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I can't use LaTeX properly, so:

A = (F/4k_{1}k_{2}).e^ik_{1}a[e^-k_{2}a (k_{2} + ik_{1})(k_{1} - ik_{2}) + e^k_{2}a (k_{2} - ik_{1})(k_{1} + ik_{2})]

where k_{1} = (1/hbar)(2mE)^1/2, k_{2} = (1/hbar)[2m(V_{0} - E)]^1/2

How on Earth do I simplify this further? Thanks.
