One-Dimensional Oscillator in a Box
Amore, Paolo; Fernandez, Francisco M.
European Journal of Physics, v31 n1 p69-77 Jan 2010
We discuss a quantum-mechanical model of two particles that interact by means of a harmonic potential and are confined to a one-dimensional box with impenetrable walls. We apply perturbation theory to the cases of different and equal masses and analyse the symmetry of the states in the latter case. We compare the approximate perturbation results with accurate numerical ones. (Contains 3 figures.)
