I've been looking into the time independent schrodinger equation (E[itex]\Psi[/itex] = Ĥ[itex]\Psi[/itex].)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know that [itex]\Psi[/itex] is the wave function and Ĥ is the hamiltonian operator. I know that Ĥ is the total of all the energies in a system. What exactly is the wave function? Is it a quantum state? And what does the E represent?

Thanks,
