I am a little confused when it is stated that Schrödinger's equation represents a deterministic evolution of the wave function of a particle. I would be OK with the idea that time evolution went from one state to another state in a deterministic way (even though each state, with respect to its eigenvalues, is not deterministic) if there were only one solution to the equation. However, it has many solutions, so why would there be a preferred solution?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
