Abstract
The Bound States Calculation Lab determines the bound states and the corresponding wavefunctions in a square, harmonic, triangular and vshaped potential well. Maximum number of eigenstates that can be calculated is 20. For better understanding the physics behind the boundstate 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:
