Can anyone help me understand what is meant by the "parity of a wavefunction"?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know in terms of even/odd parity, that:

[tex]P \Psi(x,y,z) = \pm \Psi(x,y,z)[/tex]

ie, P = +/- 1

But I don't know what "parity of a wavefunction" physically means...
