Hi....I am new to this forum.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can somebody clear a fundemental doubt i have?:uhh: A wave function has a form found by applying Schrodinger's equation. In steady-state systems, arent the system eigen functions, the wave equation of the system? if so is it the energy eigen function or the momentum eigen function(say in particle in a box problem) or eigen function of some other observable that is its wave function?
