A wave function(psi) is a mathematical quantity which gives complete information about the state of a system at a particular instant of time. But what information does the complex conjugate of a wave function(psi*) give? Does it represent the same state as psi? Or does it just have a mathematical significance and no physical significance?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
