Piecewise Constant Potentials in 1D

Several standard problems can be understood conceptually using two or three regions with constant potentials. We will find solutions in each region of the potential. These potentials have simple solutions to the Schrödinger equation. We must then match the solutions at the boundaries between the regions. Because of the multiple regions, these problems will require more work with boundary conditions than is usual.
