Potential well more complex

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Does anyone now how to solve the schrodinger equation for a potenital such that: V1(0<x<a), v2(a<x<b), v3(b<x<c). Also i need to write down the condition which gives the possible energy eigenvalues of a particle in the potential. ITs easily to solve the first potential well but when it starts to introducing the two others I feel like Im messing up. Any help would be nice?

    You basically do what you would do in a square well, except that you match the wavefunctions at the boundaries. (I'm assuming that v1, v2 and v3 are constants.)
