Theory - Infinite Potential Well Model


Schrodinger's equation is the equation of motion for quantum particles, which are observed to have wave-like properties. The square of the wave function $\Psi^* \Psi$ is interpreted as the probability distribution for the particle.


The model is solved using a Runge Kutta 4 integration algorithm.


The solution was solved in Stella, and converted to a Java Applet using Stella2Java.
