Waves every where……..
OCEAN WAVE : is a wind generated
wave – a surface wave occurs on free
surface of the ocean – a mechanical
wave that propagates along the interface
between water and air
 Pressure and friction forces perturb
the equilibrium of the water surface
 The water movement reflects the fluid
dynamics of the wind wave
 The wave motion vary along depth of
the water
 The restoring force is provided by
gravity

## In mathematics and science, a wave is a disturbance that travels through

space and time, usually by transference of energy.

## The wave equation is the prototypical example of a hyperbolic partial

differential equation of a scalar function  u : wave velocity

is the Laplacian
c is a fixed constant equal to the propagation speed of the wave u
WHAT IS …..

PARTICLES ? WAVES ?
Since 1600 – the competing theories of light were proposed by Christian Huygens and
Isaac Newton : light was thought either to consist of waves  Wave Theory of Light
(Huygens) or of corpuscles – particles  Corpuscles Theory of Light (Newton).
Double Slit Experiment – (Thomas Young – 1803)

SINGLE SLIT : The brighter pattern is sum of ‘particles’ (photon) arrive on the screen 
particle-like phenomenon.  light is particle

Dark-bright pattern

DOUBLE SLIT : If ‘particles’  the dark-bright pattern will not exist – only wave
phenomenon can explain it  called interference wave phenomenon.  light is wave
Wave--Particle Duality
Wave
Wave–particle duality is the concept that all matter exhibits
both wave-like and particle-like properties  explains inadequacy of
classical concepts like "particle" and "wave" in fully describing the
behavior of quantum-scale objects

## Matter is a Wave Structure of Space - the Spherical

Wave Center creates the 'particle' effect.

## Light is a Wave Phenomena - however, spherical standing

waves (matter) act as spherical resonators and only interact (resonantly
couple) at discrete frequencies/energies which gives the effect of
discrete light 'quanta'.

## Matter -- not only light -- propogates as waves and exchanges

energy as particles

The Schrödinger Equation
Schrödinger Equation is an equation that describes how the quantum
( Erwin Schrödinger – 1926) state of a physical system changes in time 
time dependent equation

## Quantum State also called wave function or state vector, is the

most complete description that can be given to
a physical system
The general form of
Schrödinger
equation
Ψ is the wave function; the probability amplitude for different
configuration of the system at different times,
 is reduced Planck constant

## is the Hamiltonian operator – the operator that corresponds to

the total energy of the system

Wave Phenomena
All waves have common behavior under a number of standard situations. All
waves can experience the following:
 Reflection - wave direction change from hitting a reflective surface
 Refraction - wave direction change from entering a new medium
 Diffraction - bending of waves as they interact with obstacles in their path,
most pronounced for wavelengts on the order of the diffracting object size
 Interference – superposition of two waves that come into contact with each
other (collide)
 Dispersion - wave splitting up by frequency
 Rectilinear Propagation - the movement of light waves in a straight line
