Semiclassical Treatment of the Double WellAmerican Journal of Physics (1988)
AbstractThe 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.
