SEMICLASSICAL TREATMENT OF THE DOUBLE WELL
Journal or Book Title
AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICS
The double well potential V(x)= 1/4 λ(x2−α2)2 is addressed using both semiclassical path integral and instanton techniques. The basic physics of the two‐state system is shown to arise, and energy levels calculated via the two methods are compared.
