On the Ground State of Potentials with, at Most, Finite Discontinuities and Simple Poles

Authors: Spiros Konstantogiannis

For one-dimensional potentials having, at most, finite discontinuities and simple poles at which the wave functions have simple zeros, we give an algebraic – i.e. operator-based – proof that an eigenfunction having no other zeros is a minimum-energy eigenfunction, and thus it describes the ground state.
