In short the question I am trying to answer is:

1. do the "waves-functions" from separate particle interfere?

2. do the Schrodinger equations predict the interference pattern caused by the interference of the "wave functions" of two

The above question is illustrated/clarified below in the form of an experimental setup:

we have two double slits placed side by side and a particle for each of the double slits travelling at same time.

lets say we have an experimental setup where we have a single particle (photon/electron) headed for double slits (labelled A1 & A2).

Now we create another double slit setup exactly similar as above. The double slits, in this case, are labelled B1 & B2.

We start bringing the double slits close to each other. close enough that the "wave function" emerging from, say, A2 can interfere with the "wave function" emerging from, say, B1.

Case 1: the single particle headed for double slits A1 and A2 is a

the single particle headed for double slits B1 and B2 is also a

Case 2: Case 1: the single particle headed for double slits A1 and A2 is a

the single particle headed for double slits B1 and B2 is an
