The Quantum String: Direct Solution of the Schrodinger Equation

Logo for The Quantum String: Direct Solution of the Schrodinger Equation
A wave function in an infinite square well is similar in some respects to a classical string clamped at both ends. Both can be started off in a pluck or pulse configuration, both have their change in configuration driven by their curvature, and since both obey zero boundary conditions, their time evolution can generated using the FFSS.

Good explanations coupled with a simple moving plot. No interactivity -- user can do nothing more than push the "Plot" button and watch the moving graphic. Of some limited use.
