1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Hi all. When talking about the finite square well with a potential V > 0 for - A < x < A, I have never seen an example of bound states (i.e. E<0). They only treat examles with scattering states (i.e. E>0). Is there any reason for this? My book (Griffith's Intro. to QM) does not talk about this scenario.
