    • Abstract


      The occurrence of discontinuities in the energy spectrum of thes-wave Hamiltonian in three dimensionsH(μ, λ) =p2/2 − 1/r + 2µr + 2λ2r2 has been reported by us. In this communication we develop a unified understanding, based principally on the topography of the energy surfaces, of the different discontinuities we reported earlier. These discontinuities do not in general occur wherever the corresponding classical system would display catastrophic behaviour.
