Hey guys, I'm getting started with Mathematica and I'm having some problems.
I have defined a wavefunction, which depends on two not yet known variables: the normalization constant A and the function variable q:
psi2[q_] := A*((Exp[y (c  b)] + Exp[y (c  b)])/(Exp[z (c  b)] +
Exp[z (c + b)]))*(Exp[z*q]  Exp[2 z*c + z*q])
Now I'm trying to get Mathematica to calculate the conjugate of the function, but it refuses. Even when I use assuming to tell it that A and q are real:
Assuming[Im[q] == 0 && Im[A] == 0, Conjugate[psi2[q]]]
it still gives an answer of the form:
(6.40733*10^6 
5.86046*10^6 I) (E^((0.  76.8799 I)  (0. + 3.844 I) Conjugate[
q]) + E^((0. + 3.844 I) Conjugate[q])) Conjugate[A]
Does anyone know how to handle this?
