I just started reading the quantum theory.I came across the wave particle duality experiments and just after that the book had the Schrödinger equation.I don't understand what psi is exactly in that equation and what a wave function is and how it differs from a wave equation mathematically.can anyone explain what it is in simple terms please?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
