# Schrodinger equation

The**Schrödinger equation**was formulated in 1926 by Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger?. Used in physics, specifically quantum mechanics, it is an equation that describes how the quantum state of a physical system changes in time.

In the standard interpretation of quantum mechanics, the quantum state, also called a wavefunction or state vector?, is the most complete description that can be given to a physical system. Solutions to

**Schrödinger's equation**describe not only molecular, atomic and subatomic systems, but also macroscopic systems, possibly even the whole universe.

The most general form is the time-dependent

**Schrödinger equation**, which gives a description of a system evolving with time. For systems in a stationary state (i.e., where the Hamiltonian is not explicitly dependent on time), the time-independent

**Schrödinger equation**is sufficient. Approximate solutions to the time-independent

**Schrödinger equation**are commonly used to calculate the energy levels and other properties of atoms and molecules.

**Schrödinger's equation**can be mathematically transformed into Werner Heisenberg's matrix mechanics?, and into Richard Feynman?'s path integral formulation. The

**Schrödinger equation**describes time in a way that is inconvenient for relativistic theories, a problem which is not as severe in matrix mechanics? and completely absent in the path integral formulation. wikipedia - Schrödinger equation
