I'm trying to ge my head around some basic things but where ever I look I seem to get a different answer.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

what is an eigenvalue, eigenvector, eigenfunction and eigen stat, all in the context of QM?

and how do these apply to the operator equation.

[tex]\hat{O} \psi = O \psi[/tex]

what is the differnce between a [tex] \Psi [/tex] and a [tex]\psi[/tex]?

I hope somebody can help because I cant get my head round it!
