I see why having mutiple points of infinity in the wavefunction would be bad. But what about one point being infinity and everywhere else being zero? Is this the only case where the wavefunction could have an infinite value?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Would this be a case where the expectation value of whatever physical quantity you are measuring is the same every time you measure it?
