In Feynman's Lectures on Physics, he constantly refers to the phase when discussing quantum mechanical amplitudes, but does not elaborate on what the phase means physically (e.g. the way the square of the amplitude gives the probability of finding a particle somewhere). So, if someone can explain the significance of the phase, that would be great. Thanks!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
