Detail Page

written by Paul Falstad
This simulation shows 3D representations of states of the hydrogen atom.  Either real or complex wavefunctions can be viewed, with phase information shown with color.  Multiple-energy-eigenstate wavefunctions can be created through changes in the amplitude and phase of the basis states.  The image viewpoint can be changed using the mouse.
