I What does a zero-value of the Born-condition mean?

    Search for the section The harmonic oscillator - The solutions.

    You mean x=0 and x=L. When you integrate over x from 0 to L, then x is no longer there.

    Indeed! Sorry for that mistake. I will try this tomorrow,

    Dear Demystifier, I have gone through the Further information on chap. 2.2 Harmonic Oscillator, and it appears as that I have to solve the Schrödinger eqn using the annhalation and creation operators, instead of solving it numerically, as I did and got that strange wavefunction.

    Thanks for your tip. This becomes an entirely new project, because it's currently huge.

    Thanks!

    Well, if you want to learn quantum chemistry, you cannot avoid learning more about harmonic oscillator.
