The general solution of Schrodinger's equation is givrn by --------(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

\Psi= A e^{kx-wt}.

And this satisfies the equation .

But the general solution of 3-D sinosidal wave is given by

Psi= A Sin(kx-wt)

And this also satisfies the schrodinger's equation.

Schrodinger is credited to find the solution as complex phase factor (to signify matter waves) .

Now the question is what is the need of depicting matter waves as complex phase factor ?
