Quantum mechanics with uniform forces

Andrews, Mark


For a nonrelativistic particle acted on by a spatially uniform but possibly time-dependent force, or for a harmonic oscillator also subject to such a uniform force, the wave function differs from that without the force only by a spatial displacement and a phase factor. The shifts in position and phase are simply derived from a solution of the classical equations of motion.
