# Given wave function at $t=0$, what is the process of deriving time dependent wave equation?

Suppose $$\Psi (x, t=0)=Ae^{i\alpha _1}\psi _1(x)+Be^{i\alpha _2}\psi_2(x)+Ce^{i\alpha _3}\psi_3(x).$$ If $\psi _n$ are the energy eigenfunctions how would I derive $\Psi (x,t)$?

I am having trouble with the $\psi_n$ for which I don't know how to deal with when I use Fourier transform

$$\phi(k)=\frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi}}\int_{-\infty}^{\infty} \left(Ae^{i\alpha _1}\psi _1(x)+Be^{i\alpha _2}\psi_2(x)+Ce^{i\alpha _3}\psi_3(x)\right)\, dx$$

Any hint would be appreciated.

The time dependence is given by $$\psi(x,t) = \psi_n(x) e^{-iE_nt/\hbar}$$ where $E_n$ is the energy of the system.
I would put subscript $n$ on your $\psi$s to indicate it is only valid when $\psi$ is an energy eigenfunction. –  BMS Oct 3 '13 at 18:53
