I can normalize wave functions all day, but I still don't know what I mean when I normalize them! So my question, what does it mean to normalize a wave function?
To normalize a vector f is to multiply it by a complex number of magnitude [itex]1/\|f\|[/itex] (so that the result is a vector with norm 1).
Steger: The last thing you said sounds a bit weird. Since the norm is unchanged under multiplication by a phase factor (a complex number of magnitude 1), normalization won't make phase factors go away.
