-1-1Applets for quantum mechanics
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=74994
This set of applets features illustrations of quantum mechanics through interactive animations in the following domains : Young interference fringes - wavepacket propagation - linear superposition of eigenstates (including coherent states of the harmonic oscillator) - nuclear magnetic resonance.Sat, 14 Mar 1998 08:00:00 GMTBarbra Bied Sperling CSU, Office of the ChancellorMath And Physics Applets

This site provides a large selection of physics and math simulations. There is also fairly comprehensive explanatory information about the science and computation behind the applets. The applets are fairly small, and load quickly (even on dial-up), but are very broad in their coverage of topics. These applets are useful for illustrating physical systems and behavior that can not, in general, observed by experiments.Tue, 09 Dec 2003 08:00:00 GMTPaul FalstadVisual Quantum Mechanics

https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=352845
That is what we will focus on in ChaosBook. The book is a self-contained
graduate textbook on classical and quantum chaos. Your professor does not know
this material, so you are on your own. We will teach you how to evaluate a
determinant, take a logarithmstuff like that. Ideally, this should take 100 pages
or so. Well, we failso far we have not found a way to traverse this material in
less than a semester, or 200-300 page subset of this text. Nothing to be done.Wed, 26 Nov 2008 19:07:45 GMTRonnie Mainieri; Andreas Wirzba; Niall Whelan; Gregor Tanner; Gábor Vattay; Roberto Artuso; Predrag CvitanovićMark's Quantum Mechanics Applets

<p>This is a free, online textbook offered in conjunction with MIT's OpenCourseWare. "This e-Book is a first step toward a shift in the role of the printed textbook from authoritative serial repository to modular, customizable, linkable, interactive hub. The ideal modern textbook should provide a clear overview of the domain, short summaries of key content, links to more detailed online source material, embedded self-assessment, and a vehicle for instant student feedback. This open-source e-Book for introductory mechanics uses ideas from modeling physics to encourage strategic, concept-based problem solving and employs a wiki format to enable multiple parallel organizations of the material, links to resources and student comments."</p>

https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77499
We have developed curricular material in support of a one-semester, intermediate course in quantum mechanics. This curricular material uses the Just-in-Time Teaching (JiTT) technique and, where applicable, Physlets to actively engage students outside of the classroom to enhance their in-class experience. Forty-six such JiTT exercises and in-class interactive demonstrations have been developed.Wed, 28 Aug 2002 07:00:00 GMTMario BelloniPhyslet Problems: Hydrogenic Atom

<p>The <em>Matrix Multiplication</em> simulation aims to help students learn how to multiply two matrices and what conditions need to be fulfilled for the product of two matrices to exist. Students can choose different dimensions for matrices A and B, and the product C=AB is displayed if it exists. Student can select an element of the matrix C to see how it is calculated.

https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=353602
This applet illustrates a hydrogen atom according to a particle (Niels Bohr) or wave (Louis de Broglie) model. One can choose a principal quantum number n to observe the changes in the speed of the particle or the circumference of the wave. The energy levels of the atom are displayed and change according to the value of n that is chosen. The orbital radius r and the total energy E are displayed as well. Also, one can vary an orbits radius to display a nonstationary state since the circles circumference will not be an integer multiple of the wavelength.Mon, 01 Dec 2008 21:21:21 GMTWalter FendtClassical Mechanics vs. Quantum Mechanics

https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=821153
<p>The <em>Graphical representation of complex eigenvectors</em> simulation aims to help students make connections between graphical and mathematical representations of complex eigenvectors and eigenvalues. The simulation depicts two components of a complex vector in the complex plane, and the same vector under several transformations that can be chosen by the user. A slider allows students to change the second component of the initial vector. The simulation shows whether or not the vector is an eigenvector, and if so displays the associated eigenvalue. The simulation includes a small challenge in asking the student to find the elements of one of the transformation matrices. An accompanying activity for this simulation is available at <a href="http://quantumphysics.iop.org" target="_blank">http://quantumphysics.iop.org</a> and at www.st-andrews.ac.uk/physics/quvis.
