 Apr2 asked Is 440 a factor of 72840? Apr2 asked Finding mean of $n$ consecutive numbers using a shortcut Apr1 accepted Find the median given a table of relative frequencies Mar31 comment Find the median given a table of relative frequencies I'm curious -- why do you think it should be zero? I don't see that.

That takes care of the $a(p')$. But what about the $p'$ becoming a $p$? Nov22 comment Showing that $\langle p\rangle=\int\limits_{-\infty}^{+\infty}p |a(p)|^2 dp$ Yes, but in the penultimate step, you have both $a(p)^*$ and $a(p)$ being integrated over $p$. This seems contrary to step 2, where $a(p)^*$ goes with $p$ and $a(p')$ with $p'$. So shouldn't your penultimate step read $\int_{-\infty}^{\infty} p' a(p)^*a(p') \, dp$? Nov22 comment Modulus of a complex function: $\Psi(x)=A_0 e^{-kx^2} e^{i\alpha x}$ It seems to work, and I'll make a note of it in my notes, but I just wanted to make sure that it's the most general way to find the modulus. Somehow, I seem to have missed the class where they extended the idea of a modulus to cover complex functions. It's like a secret that everybody is in on except me! Nov22 comment Modulus of a complex function: $\Psi(x)=A_0 e^{-kx^2} e^{i\alpha x}$ Can I do $|\Psi|=[\Psi^* \Psi]^{\frac{1}{2}}$?
