# Physics with Calculus/Modern/The Schroedinger Equation

From Wikibooks, open books for an open world

Like Maxwell's equations describe light wave equations in the same way Schrodinger's equations describe equations of matter waves.

The equation was discovered by an Austrian physicist, Erwin Schrodinger in 1926. Schrodinger's equations involve complex mathematics and up to now several solutions to the equations have been derived for different situations.
