Quantum mechanics for engineering students
 Quantum mechanics is hard to teach:
 abstract and counterintuitive
 mathematics is too advanced
 Simulating the 2d timedependent Schrödinger equation:
 handson approach, "virtual" experiments
 time evolution ↔ eigen values
 make use of knowledge about waves ("ripple tank") →
twodimensional
 Available packages:
 Physlet Quantum Physics (mainly 1d)
 Visual Quantum Physics (lots of 2d animations, not
interactive)

PhysBeans (computers are fast enough now!)
