Rectangular Well Superposition Model 

written by Wolfgang Christian

The Rectangular Well Eigenstate Superposition model displays the time evolution of the position-space wave function in an infinite 2D rectangular well using a superposition of energy eigenfunctions Ψn,m(x,y)  with energy eigenvalues En,m.

This model is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_qm_Superposition2DRectangularWell.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  You can modify this simulation if you have Ejs installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.
