Ψ1,ψ2 same E, p, are ⊥; find Ωψ1=ω1ψ1, Ωψ2=ω2ψ2; ω1≠ω2?

  1. Jan 9, 2015 #1
    I think I have two orthogonal solutions, ψ1 and ψ2, to the 1+1 dimensional Dirac equation with the same energy and momentum. How might you proceed to try and find some operator, Ω, if it exists, such that,

    Ωψ1 = ω1ψ1 and
    Ωψ2 = ω2ψ2 where ω1 ≠ ω2.

    Must Ω necessarily commute with the Hamiltonian operator?

    Thanks for any help!

    Oops, after a little more care looks like ψ1 and ψ2 are not ⊥. Fugawezt!
