QM Measurement Program
written by Wolfgang Christian
The QM Measurement program displays the time evolution of the position-space wave function and can be used to simulate the quantum-mechanical measurements of energy, position, and/or momentum.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the qm_measurement.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  The default wave function is an equal-mix four-state superposition in the infinite square well.  Additional states and other potential energy functions can be specified using the Display | Switch GUI menu item.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java.
