## Homework Statement

dJ(x,t)/dx = -dY^2 / dt , where y is the wave equation, and the d's represent partial derivatives. I want to make an assumption that I can describe the wave equation as a stationary state, so my question is the following:

What is the definition of a stationary state and can it be used to describe a free particle incident on a finite potential step from the left? This is not a specific question for the problem, but I need to know in order to make an assumption to solve it.
