I am calculatng the eigenvalues of a Hamiltonian as a function of wavenumber, kx. In the output I get terms such as: 7.91397770667939618289378779631011173178174224743464570216138349`50*^- 116kx^8Conjugate[kx]^4 + 1.104299999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999873169`50*^-9#1 - and 6.27893770401762587458416292699367740405320217951678639861022068`50*^19 kx^2#1^5 + #1^6 &, 1] When I plot the output numerically as a function of kx it is clear that there are terms such as |kx| in the output and this is unphysical( should be smooth in kx). My question is what do #1 and &, 1] represent? (I have looked at page 246 about Slot in the manual). I need to understand why the output is not a smooth function of kx. Thank you for your help.
