Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Short question: If you take the inner product of two arbitrary wave functions, and then the gradient of that, the result should be zero, right? (Since the product is just a complex number.) Am I missing something?

∇∫dΩψ[itex]_{1}[/itex]*ψ[itex]_{2}[/itex] = 0
