Chapter 7: The Schrödinger Equation

In the previous chapter we began our discussion of quantum mechanics with wave functions, energy eigenstates, and Born's probabilistic interpretation. We now consider the process of how to find wave functions that are energy eigenfunctions, the energy of these states, and also how to determine their time evolution. To do so, we need look no further than the Schrödinger equation.
