So I was reading this http://www.oberlin.edu/physics/dstyer/TeachQM/misconnzz.pdf, a list of common misconceptions students have after an intro course in QM.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm aware that energy eigenstates are the wave functions at "time = zero" and thus do not completely describe the system. However, it is correct thatanywave function is a solution to the time independent Schroedinger equation (also known as the energy-operator).. Right?
