QM Superposition Program Distribution 

written by Mario Belloni and Wolfgang Christian

The QM Superposition program displays the time evolution of the position-space wave function.  It is distributed as part of a zip file that contains the ready-to-run (compiled) code, as well as additional documentation, exercises, and data files.  Unzip the distribution and double click the qm_superposition.jar file which will run the program if Java is installed.  The default wave function shows a two-state superposition of harmonic oscillator states.  Other configurations can be observed by loading data files using the File | Load XML menu item.

QM Superposition is one of 18 Open Source Physics programs that model time-dependent
quantum mechanics using an energy eigenstate expansion.  Other programs provide additional
visualizations.  They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Superposition.

qm_superposition.jar 

The QM Superposition program is distributed in this file.  The qm_superposition.jar file contains a compiled (read-to-use) version of the QM Superposition program and can be run by double-clicking on the jar file if you have Java installed.  The program displays the time evolution of the position-space wave function.  The default wave function is a two-state
superposition of harmonic oscillator states.
