2) implies the conservation law d dt d3 x ψ + (x, t) − 2 2m Δ + V (x) ψ(x, t) = 0. 23) Here it plays a role that we assumed time-independent potential5 . In classical mechanics, the conservation law which appears for motion in a timeindependent potential is energy conservation. Therefore, we expect that the expectation value for energy is given by E = d3 x ψ + (x, t) − 2 2m Δ + V (x) ψ(x, t). 24) We will also rederive this at a more advanced level in Chapter 17. 12) between energy and momentum of a particle, we should also have E = p2 + V (x) .

24) We will also rederive this at a more advanced level in Chapter 17. 12) between energy and momentum of a particle, we should also have E = p2 + V (x) . 24) yields p2 (t) = d3 x ψ + (x, t)(−i ∇)2 ψ(x, t), such that calculation of expectation values of powers of momentum apparently amounts to corresponding powers of the differential operator −i ∇ acting on the wave function ψ(x, t). Maybe one of the most direct observational confirmations of the statistical interpretation of the wave function was the observation of single particle interference by Tonomura, Endo, Matsuda and Kawasaski6 in 1988.

5 Examples of the Schr¨odinger equation with time-dependent potentials will be discussed in Chapter 13 and following chapters. 6 A. Tonomura, J. Endo, T. Matsuda, T. Kawasaski, Amer. J. Phys. 57, 117 (1989). 22 Chapter 1. The Need for Quantum Mechanics This is the behavior expected from a pointlike particle which is not spread over a physical density distribution. The first few electrons seem to generate a random pattern of dots. However, when more and more electrons hit the screen, their dots generate a collective pattern which exactly corresponds to a distribution |ψ(x, t)|2 for double slit interference.
