The OSP QuILT package is a self-contained file for the teaching of time evolution of wave functions in quantum mechanics. The file contains ready-to-run OSP programs and a set of curricular materials. The material presents a computer-based tutorial on the “Time Evolution of the Wave Function.” This package is one of the recently developed computer-based tutorials that have resulted from the collaboration of the Quantum Interactive Learning Tutorials (QuILT) project and the Open Source Physics (OSP) project. The OSP QuILT package is an Open Source Physics curricular package written for the teaching of quantum mechanics. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the osp_quilt.jar file will run the package if Java is installed. Other quantum mechanics packages are also available. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, QuILT, or Quantum Mechanics.
