## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all!

Consider a wavefunction, where ##\left| \psi (x) \right|^2 = e^{-ax^2+1}+e^{-bx^2-1}## where a and b are real, positive numbers that satisfy normalization (they are purpously inside the exponent). Even if it is normalized, there are still 2 spots that ##\left| \psi \right|^2 > 1## which makes no sense. What is going on here?

Thanks!
