Therefore, B : 0. 35) where: A : P [( ; ik)e I? 38) As the wavefunction must remain finite as x ; ;-, this requires that A : 0 or P that: 9 ik  : e I? 4 The quantum well These solutions, of which there are two types, are expressed in the transcendental equations that follow. (1) Even solutions 9 ik : 9e I? 36) informs us that A : B , or that the solutions are even. The energy A A levels, solutions of Schro¨dinger’s equation, can then be determined from Fig. 2, and are represented by the intersection points where the line of slope 1/k meets  the sinusoidal arches (dotted lines).

We L L seek the perturbation induced in this eigenvector subspace by a perturbing field W : U. 54a) stipulates that the perturbed state always belongs to the eigenvector subspace but does not allow one to find the perturbed state "02 since all linear combinations of the eigenvectors " G 2 form possible solutions of this L equation. 54b) to obtain the perturbed state "02. 1) We recall that the unknowns are the new perturbed state "02 and the perturbation E : . 1) is nothing other than the eigenvalue and eigenvector  equation of the perturbation operator W in the eigenvector subspace +" G 2, i : L 1, .

12) are unfortunately few and far between. The time-dependent behaviour of an electron in a quantum well is worth citing; it may be worked out as an exercise. Generally, we employ a perturbative approach, which will enable definition of the transition rate. Let us consider a system described by the Hamiltonian H which is in an initial state " 2 at time 0. At time t : 0 we turn on a perturbation  G W(t) : U(t), where the conditions placed on and U(t) are same as in the preceding section (namely that  1 and U : H ).
