Sorry to barge in, but your wavefunction model is proportional to ##\cosh (k_1x)##, which is not square integrable for ##x\in (-\infty,\infty)##. Moreover, the wavefunction is also proportional to an oscillatory function whose wave number is extremely large ##~10^{-28}/10^{-34} \approx 10^6##. It can be the reason why MATLAB returns zero. Have you tried executing "format long" command to extend the decimal places in the output ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
