If the problem is just to avoid negative probabilities, then why isn't the modulus of the value of wave function equal to the probability of finding the particle? I mean, is it proved by mathematics that the integration of the square of wave function value over a particular region is equal to the probability that the particle will be found in that region?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
