### Schrödinger-Poisson equation

**(Schrödinger-Newton equation)**
(Schrödinger equation including a term for gravity)

The **Schrödinger-Poisson equation**
(aka **Schrödinger-Newton equation**)
is the **Schrödinger equation** (a **wave equation**
describing the quantum-mechanical characteristics of a particle
or interaction of particles) with an additional term for
gravity.
The latter term represents the gravitational field
in a the manner defined by a **Poisson equation**,
a type of equation capable of describing the field associated
with an inverse square law.
The Schrödinger-Poisson equation can be of use in cases where
both quantum effects and gravitation are significant to the
phenomenon of interest, such as the fuzzy dark matter (FDM) model.
