Chapter 13: Multi-dimensional Wells

Thus far we have concerned ourselves with one-dimensional (non-relativistic) problems in quantum mechanics. We now consider the extension to systems with more than one degree of freedom in more than one dimension. Doing so extends our discussion of quantum-mechanical systems to include more real-world-like situations. We finish with the Coulomb potential which is the potential energy function responsible for basic atomic structure.
