They are evolution equations, when t->0, (5.1.10) really stands for

a delta function.

(5.1.10)

[tex]U(x,t;x')\equiv \langle x|U(t)|x' \rangle = \int_{-\infty}^{\infty}\langle x|p\rangle \langle p|x' \rangle e^{-ip^2t/2m\hbar}dp

=\frac{1}{2\pi \hbar}\int_{-\infty}^\infty e^{ip(x-x')/\hbar} \cdot e^{-ip^2t/2m\hbar}dp=\left(\frac{m}{2\pi \hbar it}\right)^{1/2}e^{im(x-x')^2/2\hbar t[/tex]

(5.1.11)

[tex]\psi(x,t)=\int U(x,t;x')\psi(x',0)dx'[/tex]

These are the equations. Thanks Galileo, thanks snooper007, thanks everbody else. I will learn Latex now.

My trouble was that I thought wave(x,t)=propagator acts on wave(x,0), without any integral.
