New Potentials for Old: The Darboux Transformation in Quantum Mechanics
Williams, Brian Wesley; Celius, Tevye C.
Journal of Chemical Education, v85 n4 p576-584 Apr 2008
The Darboux transformation in quantum mechanics is reviewed at a basic level. Examples of how this transformation leads to exactly solvable potentials related to the "particle in a box" and the harmonic oscillator are shown in detail. The connection between the Darboux transformation and some modern operator based approaches to quantum mechanics is also outlined. (Contains 3 figures.)
