Posted by Arcane Gazebo at February 26, 2003 3:36 PM A game I've been eagerly awaiting for years has arrived at my apartment. Meanwhile, I'm in my office grappling with a factor of two error. The thing to do in cases like this is simply to declare at the end that I have obviously dropped a two somewhere by accident, and multiply it back in. This works unless it's actually something subtle like the radially symmetric simple harmonic oscillator only having odd (or is it even) solutions. Hey! That's it, I don't have the correct momentum operator in cylindrical coordinates. Soon I can go home, and play my awesome, cool game... my precious.

(Sorry about the jargon, but I really did come up with the answer while writing this entry.) Tags:
