Abstract

The basic equation of quantum theory is the Schrödinger equation. It is the dynamical time evolution equation of the theory. It can no more be proved mathematically than the equally famous equation of motion \(\mathbf{F} = m \mathbf{a}\) of classical mechanics, which is also called the Second Law of Motion of I. Newton. However, there are certain basic ideas—which become intuitions as time goes by—behind these equations.
