This paper introduces a time series model derived from the reverse engineering of the Schrodinger equation. The model is a wave packet model which has a stochastic drift as a superposition of trigonometric functions. The model can be thought of as a financial time series model that includes a model of a real-world measure that allows the opportunity to profit from market timing strategies and a model of an efficient market hypothesis that does not allow it.

Keywords: State Space Model, Wave Packet Model, Schrödinger Equation, White Noise Process
