What is Schrodinger's equation and what will I be able to find using it? Also, what does Ψ mean as used in this equation?

Ψ means wavefunction.
the equation is E(wavefunction)= H (wavefunction)

where H= hamiltonian (double derivative)
E= energy of the electron

I don't really understand, conceptually, how the Schrodinger Equation was derived and proven. Can someone explain?

What does the Hamiltonian represent in terms of wavefunction?
