wave function

n=3


a: wave function ~
b: probability distribution

What:

"Well the wave function is like probability distribution so it's a bit like parking your car in various places in a city. Statistics can map out where your car is most likely to get broken into. A crime wave is like the wave function - high here, low there, 50/50 somewhere in the middle."

a: wave function ~
b: bell curve

What:

"As a subatomic particle moves (an electron, photon, muon, boson) its position cannot be known with absolute certainty, so quantum mechanics supplies a wave function to explain where it it. This wave function is like a statistical bell curve predicting its position with varying certainty as you increase standard deviations from the mean."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
