Unformatted text preview: Observables, Operators, Eigenfunctions and Eigenvalues We are about to press on and look at. operators in more detail. But first let us review some important points: -For every isolated system there exists a mathematical function of the coordinates and time. -This function contains encoded within itself all possible 111eaningﬁil information about the state of the system. “We call this function the waveﬁlnction (or sometimes state ﬁJnction), 14}. -It is obtained as a solution to the Schrodinger wave equation. in the special case of the time-independent Schrodinger equation the waveﬁmction represents physical situations in which the probability density does not depend on time (stationary states). Postulate 3: The waveﬁmction L|J (x, f) is obtained by solving the equation: iﬁgw :I-llp The tune-dqlcndentSchrﬁdingcr Eqn- ...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
