Hello physicists,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My question is why a wave function has to be 0 at infinitiy. The author who I was studying him quantum book explains my question by saying that it is necessary to make wave function normalizable. But in my opinion there can be an arbitrary particle which can be found all around the universe therefore at infinity. Please illuminate me thank you all
