Given eigenstates , we can form linear superpositions of them with

where , and is a complex coefficient.

Change the values used in the display by moving the sliders.


In the display we have

  • The superposition wavefunction , coloured by it's phase,

  • The quadratic potential, , in blue,

  • and the (evolving) probability density is white.
