The above animation shows a gaussian wavepacket in an infinite potential energy barrier.  The top graph shows the real and imaginary parts of the wave function, while the bottom graph shows the wave function with color representing the phase of the wave function. 

Here you will find a growing archive exercises that run but are not class tested.  If you wish to use a class-tested subset of material look here.  

If you use these exercises in your QM class, or just want to report a bug, please e-mail us at:
