What do you know about complex numbers?
Note: just a reminder that the complex conjugate of ##z^*## is ##(z^*)^*##.

T is the kinetic energy operator
integration is not variable T
I just want to know the complex conjugate of φ
I think i figure it out , due to the φ is real, the complex conjugate of φ is itself . thanks anyway
