(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Please help!!! -Dirac delta potential-, Hermitian Conjugate

Im trying to solve problem 2.26 from Griffiths (1st. ed, Intro to Q.M.). Its about the allowed enegy to double dirac potential. I came up with a final equation that is trancedental. (After I separate the even and odd solution of psi.) Am I on the right track?

Please refer to Griffiths book equation number 3.83. Now consider my arguments.

Let lc> = Tlb>, where T is an operator, then <cl = <bl T+, where T+ is the hermitian conjugate of T. One of the property of inner product is.

<alc> = <cla>*

thus

<alTlb> = <blT+la>*

In eqn. 3.83 of Griffiths there is no conjugation when T+ operates on la>...

Does this mean

<blT+la>* = <alT+lb> ?

where * means conjugate

thanks!!!!
