This web site provides images of the Wigner Distribution for states of the 1D infinite square well, as well as for free particles. These pictures illustrate the time dependence of states and the phenomenon of revival of quantum states of a closed system. This material supplements a journal article by the authors, an extended version of which is available on the site.
