Homework Help: SHO with a fixed boundary

  1. Oct 19, 2006 #1
    How to solve the time-independent Schodinger equation with the following potential:

    U(x)=x^2 for x>x0
    U(x)=infinity for x<x0 ?

    To the right side of x0 it's just a harmonic oscillator potential (of which I presume you know the solutions). What's the wavefunction for x<x0? Then apply boundary conditions.
