In conclusion, the simulation should illustrate the various behaviors
exhibited by trapped ions and provide insight into such
Consideration of these topics will require various forms of numerical analysis and a graphical user interface. The proposed numerical analysis includes Fast Fourier transforms, spatial probability distributions, and energy calculations. A graphical user interface, developed on Application Visualization System (AVS), will allow the user to specify simulation parameters, view a representation of the physical system, and look at graphs of the data.
