Can someone explain the components of the Time dependent Schrodinger equation for me.

Thank you

why don't try it for yourself first and then we can fill in the gaps for you?

The Schrödinger equation contains one complex valued dependent variable, $$\Psi$$, which depends on the time coordinate t and 3N space coordinates, where N is the number of particles. It also contains a set of real valued parameters $$m_a$$ with a ranging from 1 to N, indicating the mass of each particle in the system, and a real valued parameter V, the system's potential energy, which depends on the same time and space coordinates.
