(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I am to find the eigenstate of the operator i(d/dx)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

After writing the eigenvalue equation with eigenvalue a, I got

|psi|=exp [(a/i)x+C] where C is the constant of integration...

Now, I do not understand what will be the result, if I omit the || sign from psi

The wave function has to be finite all the way-so,should there be any -ve sign before the exponent?
