The Hermite Polynomials are solutions to the Schrödinger equation for the Quantum Simple Harmonic Oscillator. But the Hermite Polynomials are real, not complex. I thought that solutions to the Schrödinger equation always had to be complex. What am I not understanding? Thanks in advance.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
