Time independent schrodinger equation

  1. Aug 5, 2016 #1
    • OP warned about not providing an attempt at a solution
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Lets say f(x) is a solution to TISE. If it is, why is its complex conjugate f*(x) a solution too?

    2. Relevant equations
    TISE = time independent Schrodinger equation

    3. The attempt at a solution
    ?????

    You can convince yourself by showing that $$H\Psi = E\Psi\Rightarrow (H\Psi)^* = (E\Psi)^*$$
