This small group activity is designed to help upper division undergraduate students learn how to expand functions in terms of spherical harmonics. Students work in small groups to…

This computer visualization activity is designed to help upper division undergraduate students visualize linear combinations of spherical harmonics. Students use a Maple worksheet or…

This is a Java applet that creates surface plots of the spherical harmonics. The user can set the L and m indices and the resolution of the plot. There is a restriction that L must…

This is a pair of interactive Java applets illustrating three-dimensional quantum states. Spherical harmonics are shown projected on a unit sphere. Both the magnitude of Y(L,m) +…
