Bound Eigenstate Superposition JS Model Documents

Main Document

Bound Eigenstate Superposition JS Model 

written by Wolfgang Christian

The Bound Eigenstate Superposition JavaScript Model illustrates the fundamental building blocks of one-dimensional quantum mechanics, the energy eigenfunctions¬† Psin(x) and energy eigenvalues En.  The user enters the expansion coefficients into a table and the simulation uses the superposition principle to construct and display a time-dependent wave function using either infinite square well (ISW) or simple harmonic oscillator (SHO) eigenfunctions.

The Eigenstate Superposition model was developed using the Easy Java/JavaScript Simulations (EjsS) modeling tool. You can modify this simulation if you have Easy Java/JavaScript Simulations (EjsS) version 5.2 or above installed by downloading and importing the zip file into EjsS.
