Ψ means wavefunction.

the equation is E(wavefunction)= H (wavefunction)

where H= hamiltonian (double derivative)

E= energy of the electron

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?
