I am just getting into quantum after a long absence of working on modern physics. I am having a go at "Introduction to Modern Physics" by Griffiths(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the simplest equation that satisfies Schrödinger's Wave Equation. It looks like $$Ae^{x}$$ would do the trick, but it would not solve the boundary conditions of being zero at +/- ∞. So would $$Ae^{-|x|}$$ be the simplest? If it is, does it correspond to anything in reality?

Sorry for the possibly lame question,

Chris
