Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Are odd/even wavefunctions the same as symmetric/antisymmetric wavefunctions ?

I have seen symmetric/antisymmetric applied to 2 identical particles but is this the same as the odd/even wavefunctions for example applied to a single particle in an infinite well ?

Thanks
