1. Associated with any particle moving in a conservative field of force is a wave function which determines everything that can be known about the system.

2. With every physical observable q there is associated an operator Q, which when operating upon the wavefunction associated with a definite value of that observable will yield that value times the wavefunction.

3. Any operator Q associated with a physically measurable property q will be Hermitian.

4. The set of eigenfunctions of operator Q will form a complete set of linearly independent functions.

5. For a system described by a given wavefunction, the expectation value of any property q can be found by performing the expectation value integral with respect to that wavefunction.

6. The time evolution of the wavefunction is given by the time dependent Schrodinger equation.
