Abstract

The last multiplier of Jacobi provides a route for the determination of families of Lagrangians for a given system. We show that the members of a family are equivalent in that they differ by a total time derivative. We derive the Schrödinger equation for a one-degree-of-freedom system with a constant multiplier. In the sequel we consider the particular example of the simple harmonic oscillator. In the case of the general equation for the simple harmonic oscillator which contains an arbitrary function we show that all Schrödinger equations possess the same number of Lie point symmetries with the same algebra. Prom the symmetries we construct the solutions of the Schrödinger equation and find that they differ only by a phase determined by the gauge.
