Revision: differential equations. A differential equation is an equation to be satisfied by a particular function, e.g. f(x), that involves derivatives of that function, e.g. df/dx. A linear differential equation is one in which there are no powers higher than the first of the unknown function (or its derivatives)..

21. SOLVING THE TIME EQUATION

23. Notes In one space dimension, the time-independent Schrödinger equation is an ordinary differential equation (not a partial differential equation) The time-independent Schrödinger equation is an eigenvalue equation for the Hamiltonian operator: Operator × function = number × function (Compare Matrix × vector = number × vector) We will consistently use uppercase ?(x,t) for the full wavefunction (TDSE), and lowercase ?(x) for the spatial part of the wavefunction when time and space have been separated (TISE)
