Abstract:

It is shown that the insertion of a barrier, in the isotropic harmonic oscillator and in the hydrogen atom, gives each system the higher symmetry usually associated with the other. The result is more general the imposition of a reflection condition can change the symmetry from SU3 to O4, and vice versa. This may have implications for elementary particle symmetries. Author
