Homework Help: Quantum mechanics, eigenvalues, eigenfunctions

Posted by Steven on Thursday, October 22, 2009 at 7:45pm.

What exactly is an eigenvalue?

"To be an eigenfunction, the operator has to reproduce the function with some multiplicative constant."

Is the eigenvalue the multiplicative constant -or- is it the m constant and the function?

Many thanks.
