Confused ( well obviously it QM ) - TDSE problem in understand

  1. Nov 22, 2005 #1
    I have been looking at the TDSE (time dependent Shrodinger equation), considered when describing a system with only 2 states.

    And essentially I got confused!! Can i get a decent explanation?

    To clarify I am fine with Hamiltonians, and the Hamiliton of a particle in an electromagnetic potential.

    Usually [itex]i = \sqrt{-1}[/itex]. :smile:
