I'm learning about the Schrödinger equation in one of my uni courses, and we've recently gone past how to solve the time-independent version. That got me wondering if there is a space-independent version of the Schrödinger equation and what it could possibly be used for. I know I'm probably talking nonsense to someone who really knows QM :P But I just thought it'd be interesting to contemplate whether space-independence actually makes sense, if there even is such a thing.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
