The time independent schrodinger equation doesn't involve complex numbers.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The time-dependent equation does involve complex numbers.

When a complex number appears in an equation or expression can we assume that there is some underlying relation to time?

So if I had a probability such as 1/4 + i / 8 could this be a probability that

varies with time?
