## Homework Statement

Find the ground state energy of a particle restricted to move in one dimension subject to the potential in the attachement using perturbation theory.

## Homework Equations

Yo = (2/a)

^{1/2}sin(nπx/a)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm not sure how to account for the potential since there are two wells.

My setup right now using braket notation is E = 2<Y|Y> + <Y|Vo|Y> where Y is the wavefunction Yo = (2/a)

^{1/2}sin(nπx/a)

Can I get some feedback as to if I am headed in the right direction or how to get there if I am not?

Thank you.
