Suppose I have Schroedinger equation in the form:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]

-u''(x)+V(x)u(x)=Eu(x)

[/tex]

The potential is such that as |x| -> Infinity, V(x) reaches a constant positive value. In this case can we have bound state/plane wave solutions for u(x) with E > 0 ?
