Hey!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Why i can't use as approach for the eigenfunctions in the regions of high potential energy for bound states only Acosh(Qx+m) instead of A'cosh(Qx)+B'sinh(Qx), where m is the midpoint of the wall?

If i put the origin of the coordinate system in this midpoint and use the mirror-symmetry of the chrystal, the sinh term must vanish.

Many thanks,

Felix
