Schrodinger's Equation, special cases
Posted:
Jul 9, 1996 10:21 AM


Having seen the solutions of Schrodinger's Equation (time independent, not that it really affects anything anyway) for the cases of the free particle, particle on a line, particle in a box, etc, I was wondering if a nice analytic solution exists for the case of a particle confined to a twodimensional circle or a 3dimensional sphere? Does anyone know if this has been solved at all? Can someone point me to a reference or sketch out a derivation of the solution?
Thanks.
