Quantum Mechanical WavesMain article: Schrödinger equation See also: Wave function
The Schrödinger equation describes the wave-like behavior of particles in quantum mechanics. Solutions of this equation are wave functions which can be used to describe the probability density of a particle.

Famous quotes containing the words waves, quantum and/or mechanical:
“With these I would be.
And with water: the waves coming forward, without cessation,
The waves, altered by sand-bars, beds of kelp, miscellaneous
Topped by cross-winds, tugged at by sinuous undercurrents
The tide rustling in, sliding between the ridges of stone,
The tongues of water, creeping in, quietly.”
—Theodore Roethke (19081963)
“The receipt to make a speaker, and an applauded one too, is short and easy.Take of common sense quantum sufficit, add a little application to the rules and orders of the House, throw obvious thoughts in a new light, and make up the whole with a large quantity of purity, correctness, and elegancy of style.”
—Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (16941773)
“We are caught up Mr. Perry on a great wave whether we will or no, a great wave of expansion and progress. All these mechanical inventionstelephones, electricity, steel bridges, horseless vehiclesthey are all leading somewhere. Its up to us to be on the inside in the forefront of progress.”
—John Dos Passos (18961970)
