output #1

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*^-

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.
