Solve the eigenvalue problem O[tex]_{6}[/tex] [tex]\Psi[/tex](x) = [tex]\lambda[/tex] [tex]\Psi[/tex](x)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

O[tex]_{6}[/tex][tex]\Psi[/tex](x) = [tex]\int[/tex] from negative infinity to x of dxprime *[tex]\Psi[/tex](xprime) * xprime

what values of eigenvalue [tex]\lambda[/tex] lead to square integral eigenfuctions? (Hint: Differentiate both sides of the equation with respect to x)

Im trying to do this with integration by parts but i keep getting infinity in some form or another. Im assuming [tex]\Psi[/tex](xprime) is equal to the derivative of [tex]\Psi[/tex](x) with respect to x. so i end up with [tex]\lambda[/tex][tex]\Psi[/tex](xprime) is equal to some integral that keeps working out to infinity. I dont want anyone to give me a solution but if anyone can give me a bump in the right direction i would be pumped.

Thanks
