I am unfamiliar with LaTeX (is there a tutorial around, or should I just wing it and risk posting a potential mess?). my problem is that I need to normalize a wave function:
psi(x,t) = Ae^(-bx)e^(-iwt). there are no constraints given.
integral of psi*psi = 1, limits of integration are negative infinity to positive infinity
The Attempt at a Solution
I know that if I use the complex conjugates (psi*psi) the exponential expressions will cancel and I will be left integrating a constant. I get A2x |-[tex]\infty[/tex][tex]\infty[/tex] = 1, which doesnt make much sense. I know this question is relatively easy and that I'm probably missing something simple, but I've been away from this material for a few years and getting back into it is a little rough.
Any help is appreciated!
