Description:

This Physlet shows the solution to Schroedinger's equation for a particle inside an infinite square well. It is solved using the "shooting method" in which an initial guess for the energy is made. After each iteration, compared to the known boundary value and the energy is refined an acceptable tolerance level is reached. In this problem the trial solution to the wavefunction is calculated from left to right.
