Schrodinger equation

  1. Sep 9, 2011 #1
    In quantum mechanics, time independent Schrodinger equation gives dynamics of system.
    How do one claim that this equation is evolution of a system? Since dynamics need time dependency. How do one explain this discrepancy?
    Thanks in well advance....

    I believe the wave equation gives the probability density function of the electron's position in it's orbit and not the dynamics (movement) of the electron. We have a quantum mechanics forum here. Why don't you ask about the wave equation there.
