Solving the Schrodinger equation for a free particle gives me this output: output image What does the $\psi^{(2,0)}$ mean here?

  • $\begingroup$ I can see that K[1] is a generated parameter here, but the formatting of $\psi$ doesn't seem to match? $\endgroup$ – Dan Goldwater Aug 7 '19 at 15:44

    $\begingroup$ $\psi^{(2,0)}$ is shorthand for the second derivative of $\psi$ in its first argument. $\endgroup$ – eyorble Aug 7 '19 at 15:47
