I'm learning how to solve the Schrodinger wave equation and I know that the solutions are of the general form:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\Psi[/tex](x) = A sin kx + B cos kx

This was given to us, but where did it come from? Is it the fact that the wave could be a sine or cosine wave, and the other constant multiplier (A or B) can then be set to zero using boundary conditions? Or is there something more complicated going on here?
