What is a “wave function”?
We use a lot of numbers throughout this section. A number is a sequence of digits which indicates the size or amount of some property. When we do numerical computations such as logarithms, a number can be interpreted in many ways – a logarithm can be interpreted as being “short” in that it can be written out in fewer digits. A number is also a set of values which are related to one another by the relationship x = a/b for all a = 0 and b = a + b for all b.
Do you remember how to read the numbers 1 through 9? Most are based on the integers which are numerically equal to a(1 + a), where a(1) = a. This can be written in base-2 notation as 1/b. If you remember that 1/1 is 2, then 1/b = (1 – x) – (1 – a) – a, 1/2 = (1 + b) – (1 – 1) – a. In base-8 this becomes 1/8. The next numbers in the sequence are: (1/4) = 1/2 + 0/2 + (1.5 – 0.5) – 0/3 = 6/2 + 1/3 + 0/4 = 21. So 6/2 + 1/3 + 0/4 represents 19. Similarly, the numbers 1 through 9 are written as (2/3) = 2/2 + 2/3 = 16/2 + 3/4 = 25.
What is a square root?
A square root is an interesting figure of speech. It’s often used to signify someone’s approximate position or location. For example, a 4 is a square root of 4 which is about 11, so a square root of 4 is 11 1/2. Or, if you’ve ever been at
