Homework Help: Relativistic Bound States

  1. Mar 16, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I'm dealing with a dirac particle in an attractive spherical square well. I've solved for the transcendental equation to find energy, found the normalized wave function, and now I'm trying to explain what happens when the well becomes very deep, when V0 ≥ 2mc2. If I plug V0=2mc2 into my equations, nothing dramatic really sticks out. I have the same equation as Greiner on page 220, Eq.(27).

    2. Relevant equations
    I'm trying to get the values in the left hand side of table 9.2 on page 222 (V0(κ=-1)), but I'm not sure how to go about it. If I can't solve for this, I need to come up with another consequence of the well depth approaching 2mc2.

    3. The attempt at a solution
