In Quantum mechanics, the wave function as a solution of the Schrodinger equation describes the probability of finding certain values for measurable quantities. Also the quantum mechanical wave function can interfere and this results, by analogy with the optical waves, in a redistribution of probability.The following concepts are discussed: Schroding equation and the wave function, operators, stationary states, linear algebra of quantum states, interpretation and uncertainty principle, bound and free particle, harmonic oscillator, spin impulse, spin and spin coupling, quantum mechanics in 3 dimensions, separation of variables, hydrogenlike atoms, identical particles, independent particle approach, the periodic table, the variation principle and undegenerated timeindependent disturbance theory.Translated with
