I just started teaching myself multivariable calculus and I know what the modulus of a complex number is but what is the complex conjugate and why does it pop out when we take the mod square of psi?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Like the first minute or two of video...

What are complex conjugates, how does one find them, etc...
