The main focus of this book is how to find solutions to the Schrodinger equation, an important part of any introductory course in quantum mechanics. First we introduce and derive both the time-dependent and time-independent versions of the Schrodinger equation. Then we present several examples of quantum-mechanical systems and solve the Schrodinger equation in each case.
