Going back to the basics, I recall the wave function of quantum mechanics being dependent on space and time coordinates, such as [itex]\Psi (\overline{x},t)[/itex], however one says that quantum mechanics is a 0+1 dimensional (0 space, 1 time) QFT. So there is NO SPACE.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Now, I know there's the caveat that in QM position and momentum are operators on the Hilbert space of states, so in a way we could just have time as a physical coordinate, but how does this relate to the space dependence of the wave-function?

Sorry for the possibly trivial question, but this is bugging me!

Thanks
