When examining the Schrodinger equation for a particle in a square well there is a lower case “i” that shows up in the equations that never gets defined. I have checked several sources and its usage is somewhat uniform and yet not defined.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can someone define the “i” ?

One source I am looking at is:

galileo.phys.virginia.edu/classes/252/electron_in_a_box "dot" html

It will be the first equation.

Thanks
