Note on the Time-Dependent Damped and Forced Harmonic Oscillator.
Leach, P. G. L.
American Journal of Physics, v46 n12 p1247-49 Dec 1978
A Hamiltonian for the time-dependent damped and forced harmonic oscillator is derived. A simple time-dependent linear canonical transformation transforms the Hamiltonian to one whose solution is readily obtained. The wave function for the corresponding quantum mechanical problem is given. (Author/GA)
