Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the physical meaning of zero probability of finding a particle in the square of the Quantum SHO wave function?

the particle is supposed to oscillate about the equilibrium position, how would it go from an end point to the other end point without passing by certain points?

Could the particle be transferred to another energy level that has a probability at these points when passing over these points?
