Schrödinger picture

[′shrād·iŋ·ər ‚pik·chər]
(quantum mechanics)
A mode of description of a quantum-mechanical system in which dynamical states are represented by vectors which evolve in the course of time, and physical quantities are represented by stationary operators, in contrast to the Heisenberg picture.
