  1. Rauch, J; Reed, M, Two examples illustrating the differences between classical and quantum mechanics, Communications in Mathematical Physics, vol. 29 no. 2 (1973), pp. 105-111, ISSN 0010-3616 [doi]

    Two examples are presented: The first shows that a potential V(x) can be in the limit circle case at ∞ even if the classical travel time to ∞ is infinite. The second shows that V(x) can be in the limit point case at ∞ even though the classical travel time to infinity is finite. The first example illustrates the reflection of quantum waves at sharp steps. The second example illustrates the tunnel effect. © 1973 Springer-Verlag.
