Website Detail Page

written by Kristel Michielsen and Hans De Raedt
This web page illustrates the motion of a quantum wavepacket, using 3D animations.  Basic concepts and phenomena are shown using simulations rather than complex mathematics, although the functional forms of the states are given.  Motion of a free wavepacket, and a wavepacket in a box, an harmonic oscillator, an electric field, and a magnetic field are all described and shown.
