The Bound States Calculation Lab determines the bound states and the corresponding wavefunctions in a square, harmonic, triangular and v-shaped potential well. Maximum number of eigenstates that can be calculated is 20. For better understanding the physics behind the bound-state calculation lab that numerically solves for the eigenstates and the eigenfunctions using the shooting methods, we have also provided the following reading material:
Also, we have prepared a number of exercises that demonstrate the full potential of this tool and also motivate the students to develop analytical skills to solving this type of problems:
