QM Probability 2D Program 

written by Wolfgang Christian

The QM Probability 2D program displays the time evolution of the two-dimensional probability density using color to represent its magnitude. The default wave function is a two-state superposition in the x (nx = 1,2) and y dimension (ny = 3,4) state in an infinite square well.  Additional states and other potential energy functions can be specified using the Display | Switch GUI menu item.  

QM Probability 2D is one of 18 Open Source Physics programs that model time-dependent quantum mechanics using an energy eigenstate expansion.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the qm_probability_2d.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  Other programs provide additional visualizations.  They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Superposition.
