Find the time dependent wave function

  1. Jan 28, 2015 #1
    If you are given the state of a system at t=0 in vector form, how do you find the wave function for arbitrary t?

    What do you mean by "vector form"? The wave function is determined by solving the Schrödinger equation for the given initial conditions.

    I have figured it out now but thanks for your interest.
