Some quantum dynamics simulations

Hi:

I am working on a quantum dynamics simulator that can perhaps be used to learn quantum mechanics without resorting to the formalism. This approach may have a great potential. Here are some links to some results:

1. http://mw.concord.org/modeler1.3/mirror/quantum/coulomb.html

Fundamentally important concepts in chemistry, such as electrostatic attractions, bound state, polarization, covalent bonding, and ionization, emerge from these simulations.

2. http://mw.concord.org/modeler1.3/mirror/quantum/tunneling2d.html

Quantum tunneling effect.

3. http://mw.concord.org/modeler1.3/mirror/quantum/doubleslit.html

A simulaiton of the electron double-slit experiment.

4. http://mw.concord.org/modeler1.3/mirror/quantum/box.html
5. http://mw.concord.org/modeler1.3/mirror/quantum/circle.html
6. http://mw.concord.org/modeler1.3/mirror/quantum/ellipse.html

For fun.

Comments are welcome. Also check out my blog for progresses:

I tried to 'launch the model' in your references above, but my vista (with java) did not know a jnlp extension, so I could not run the simulations.
 
You can visit http://mw.concord.org and download the Molecular Workbench software (using the third button on that page) to your disk and double-click on the mw.jar file. It will launch the application. Then you can explore within it.
