Consider the eigenstates of the infinite square well defined by
V(x<-a/2) = infinity
V(-a/2 < x < a/2) = 0
V (x> a/s) = infinity

a. If the Hilbert space base-kets for this potential are seen in the attachment. Write down the matrix representation for the Hamiltonian H-hat of the system.
b. What is the matrix representation for the parity operator P-hat?
c. Use the matrix representation to verify the commutation relation [H-hat, P-hat]=0
