Searching for experiences of physics/quantum physics majors. I had a few questions on a quantum wave function. Thanks~.

Here is the answer. The difference between quantum and classical harmonic oscillator.

The nature of your question regarding classical and harmonic oscillators, which has been immediately been answered by Petrichoria, seems to me to indicate that you are probably a bit of a beginner at Quantum.
Wikipedia (surprisingly or not) has some very good articles on Quantum. I don't know what your maths is like, or whether you are into bra / ket notation aka Dirac or not, but this article gets a bit more technical about quantum harmonic oscillators:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantu...nic_oscillator
and gives you a good technical rundown on it.
Griffiths' book is a pretty standard text on quantum mechanics.
Another one I'd recommend is The Feynman Lectures in Physics Vol. 3. This is the volume in the series dealing with quantum mechanics. Rather than providing mathematically heavy solutions of the Schrodinger Equation with probability amplitudes and so on, it approaches the topic from a highly descriptive and physical viewpoint.
I'd recommend reading it because of its physical emphasis and also that Feynman is simply a brilliant and expressive writer who did not just make statements but supports them completely.
It's over 50 years old, but hasn't really aged much (except for bits and pieces of the English, but that's OK). You can find it all over internet in pdf format. I've just taken a look on amazon for prices and you might pick up a 2nd hand copy for $10 onwards.
