Detail Page

written by Christopher Palmer
This website contains a short tutorial on the time dependent Schrodinger Equation and the motion of wave packets. The dynamics of a compact wavepacket in a square well serves as a connection with the classical limit. A JAVA applet allows the user to control parameters of the wavepacket. The website includes suggested instructive activities. Note, the applet does not run as an animation; the user must manually increment time.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
