Pseudo Scalar Relativistic QM problem

  1. Mar 10, 2005 #1
    Hi there,

    I have a problem that I could really do with a little help on.

    I have a spin 1/2 particle in which the dirac eqtn reads:


    ( i {d} - \gamma V(x) - m ) \Phi = 0


    (I am new to latex - the d is SLASHED and the gamma is GAMMA5 )

    In a potential V(x,t) = 0 for -L LTE x GTE L
    = V(zero) otherwise

    I have to find:

    a) energy eigenfunctions and eigenvalues

    b) say what happends to the lowest energy eigenvalue and eigenfunction as the potential goes to infinity.

    Any advice greatly appreciated!
