Description:

The Wigner package is a self-contained file for the teaching of the time evolution and visualization of energy eigenstates and their superpositions in quantum mechanics. The file contains ready-to-run OSP programs and a set of curricular materials. The material focuses on the Wigner quasi-probability distribution for position and momentum. The Wigner 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_wigner.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, or Quantum Mechanics.
