Why must the ladder operators be(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] \sqrt{\dfrac{m\omega}{2\hbar}}(x+\dfrac{ip}{m\omega})[/tex] and

[tex] \sqrt{\dfrac{m\omega}{2\hbar}}(x-\dfrac{ip}{m\omega})[/tex]?

What is the method that obtain them from schrodinger Equation?

And why we know that they are creation and anihilation operator?
