We learnt that we can use the ladder operator to obtain the states of a quantum oscillator. However, I see no direct evidence to show that the solutions are complete. I mean, how can we know the energy state follows E is (E+hw). Why can't we have some more states in between? Does the derivation using ladder operator prove this?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
