diagram of four solutions

Labels n=1 and n=2 indicate the functions r·Ω(r) corresponding to eigenvalues E1 and E2. These functions satisfy the restrictions imposed on the solutions of the first Schrödinger equation. The others two divergent functions, corresponding to values of E between E1 and E2 , do not satisfy these restrictions.
