I haven't done this in forever and I forgot how. My old textbook is gone and mathworld seems like no help. I want to set up the probabilities for a double slit experiment.

lets call the waveform of a group of particles

how do I figure out the amplitudes |w(x)|2 at x for slits 1 and 2? (forgive my latin letters, if you recognize the setup, you should be able to figure out what they mean)

I kind of want to be able to do the whole process of probablities say of a particle at each slit, etc but I straight up can't remember the process at all and I need to figure out where to start
