9) with d(x) = sin(x)/πx. Another important realization uses the function d(x) = (π + πx2 )−1 , κ a 1 1 = lim π 1 + κ2 x2 a→0 π a2 + x2 ∞ 1 = lim dk exp(ikx − a|k|). 9), and indeed we do not need this requirement. Consider the following example, d(x) = 1 2 1 α exp[−α(x − a)2 ] + π 2 β exp[−β(x − b)2 ]. π This function has two maxima if α · β = 0 and if a and b are sufficiently far apart, and it even has a minimum at x = 0 if α = β and a = −b. Yet we still have lim κ d(κ · x) = lim κ→∞ κ→∞ + κ 2 κ 2 α exp[−α(κx − a)2 ] π β exp[−β(κx − b)2 ] π = δ(x), because the scaling with κ scales the initial maxima near a and b to a/κ → 0 and b/κ → 0.

Therefore I will point out how Schr¨odinger could have invented the Schr¨odinger equation (although his actual thought process was much more involved and was motivated by the connection of the quantization rules of old quantum mechanics with the Hamilton-Jacobi equation of classical mechanics [37]). The problem is to come up with an equation for the motion of particles, which explains both quantization of energy levels and wave-particle duality. As a starting point, we recall that the motion of a non-relativistic particle under the influence of a conservative force F (x) = −∇V (x) is classically described by Newton’s equation m d2 x(t) = −∇V (x(t)), dt2 and this equation also implies energy conservation, E= p2 + V (x).

Therefore, we expect that the expectation value for energy is given by E = d3 x ψ + (x, t) − 2 2m Δ + V (x) ψ(x, t). 24) We will also rederive this at a more advanced level in Chapter 17. 12) between energy and momentum of a particle, we should also have E = p2 + V (x) . 24) yields p2 (t) = d3 x ψ + (x, t)(−i ∇)2 ψ(x, t), such that calculation of expectation values of powers of momentum apparently amounts to corresponding powers of the differential operator −i ∇ acting on the wave function ψ(x, t).
