Ok, I understand the schrodinger equation for the most part, the thing is though, I dont understand what ∂ means...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In the equation:(∂^2ψ/∂x^2)+8(pi)m/h^2(E-V)ψ=0

It pops up two times. The rest of the equation is kinda self explanatory, but I don't know what on earth ∂ means

please, tell me, the ignorance is killing me.
