In this example, the Hermite equation is solved using the Laplace representation. There is a parameter in the equation and the nature of the singular points of the integrand of the representation depends on this parameter (is the origin a pole or a branch point or neither, for example). This means that the paths of integration have to be chosen for the dierent cases that arise. We will solve the Hermite equation1 w 2zw + 2w = 0 using the Laplace kernel K(z, t) = ezt . First we write w(z) in its Laplace representation: w(z) =

()

where and f (t) are to be determined. Substituting this integral into the dierential equation gives 0 =

= =

t2 + 2 f (t)ezt dt

The integrand can be made to vanish by choosing f (t) to satisfy the rst order dierential equation: (t2 + 2 + 2)f (t) + 2tf (t) = 0. Ignoring the constant of integration, which is just an overall multiple, the solution is f (t) = t1 e 4 t . Hermites equation is therefore satised provided is chosen such that ezt tf (t)

= 0 i.e.

t e 4 t

g(z, t)

= 0.

The Hermite equation is a transformation of the Schrdinger equation with a simple harmonic oscillator o h2 potential 2m + 1 m 2 x2 = E. The new (dimensionless) independent variable is given by z = x(m/ )1/2 h 2

1 and the new dependent variable w given by = wez /2 . The new constant is dened by E = h( + 2 ). The 1/2 Hermite equation is a special case of the conuent hypergeometric equation with c = /2 and zhermite = zchge .

Next, we nd the zeros of g(z, t), regarded as a function of t. g(z, t) vanishes in the sectors of innity for which 1 Re t2 + zt < 0, 4 i.e. when | arg t| < /4 or | arg t| < /4. If Re < 0, g(z, t) also vanishes at t = 0. Finally, we investigate the singularities of the integrand of (): ezt f (t) = t1 e 4 t

If is not an integer, then the t-plane must have a branch cut from 0 to along (say) the negative real axis. If is a positive integer or zero, then there is a pole at t = 0, which can be encircled by a closed contour. Putting this together gives various possibilities, which cover all values of . (i) =integer. In this case, there is a branch cut along the negative real axis in the t-plane. One path can wrap round this cut and the other can run parallel to the real axis from to . If Re < 0, g(z, t) has a zero at the origin, so instead of wrapping round the cut, the rst path could terminate at the origin.

(ii) = 0, 1, 2 . . .. Now f (t) has pole instead of a branch point at the origin. One path can run parallel to the real axis and the other can simply circle the origin since the branch cut is not now necessary.

(iii) = 1, 2, . . .. Now there is no singularity of f (t) at the origin but g(z, 0) = 0. One path can run parallel to the real axis and the other can begin at or + and terminate at the origin.

Remarks 1) The choice of paths is by no means unique. In fact a simplied choice for is given by a path parallel to the real axis (in all cases) and either a path wrapping round the negative real axis if Re 0 or a path along the negative real axis terminating at the origin if Re < 0. 2) We have not demonstrated that the two solutions are linearly independent. Two paths which are not obviously equivalent will generally give linearly independent solutions, but we have to be cautious. For example, for case (iii), paths which run above and below the branch cut in the case Re < 0 and terminate at the origin do not give linearly independent solutions: the two integral representations just dier by an overall factor of e2i(+1) . 3) The choice of the branch in the integrand was arbitrary: any other choice (for example, a cut along the positive t-axis) would have served equally well. However, it is dangerous to use one branch for one of the solutions and a dierent branch for the other. If it is dicult to nd a second suitable path, it is tempting to move the cut, but this can lead to a second solution which is not linearly independent.
