I believe you'll find that the angle brackets mean "expected value", the bars | | mean "modulus", and this is some sort of QM problem.

Or maybe it's just making me have false memories...

And the star means "complex conjugate", by the way. What ends up being a good way to do these depends on what the wave functions look like.
