Schrödinger’s equation a fundamental result in quantum mechanics. It’s a linear partial differential equation that controls the wave functions of a quantum mechanical system. It’s a complex equation involving i. So we don’t know what it looks like, however, Max Born found a way to fix this by taking the complex conjugate and creating a real-valued function. This idea became known as Born’s rule.

Hi Matti, I am excited to hear your talk tomorrow. It’ll be interesting to learn more about this idea within quantum mechanics. I haven’t been able to go into depth on topics within Physics recently, but I think the mechanical functions between particles are very fascinating. Looking forward to your presentation!

Hello Matti,

This sounds like a great talk that carries some interesting insights. The discovery of Schrödinger’s equation, indeed, made a significant contribution to development of quantum mechanics at large. I was not aware about Born’s rule and I am looking forward to hearing about this tomorrow!

Interesting talk Matti!

It was nice to here more about Schrödinger and Heisenberg after one of my Honors course revolving around them and my thesis about nuclear fission. The world of quantum mechanics would not be the same without them and Schrödinger’s equation
