What is Hamiltonian and what is used for in terms of the Schrodinger equation?

The Hamiltonian is the double derivative or the wave function (psi). The double derivative of the wave function is the same as the energy of the electron.

What does double derivative mean? The derivative of what?

Is the Hamiltonian likely to be used a lot in this course? Is there an example problem that demonstrates when you would use or solve for?

Will we be expected to calculate this?

As far as I know, we won't need to do any calculations using Schrodinger's equation or the Hamiltonian in this class.

Yea, he specifically said in lecture that we will never be tested on this.
