Matlab tutorial for Physics 61 Lets start by working with the states of a one-dimensional infinite square well: V ( x) = 0 0< x<a
= elsewhere The stationary state wavefunctions (as a function of x) are: 2 nx n (x ) = sin . a a In order to work with these
MATLAB #1 - Waves
Objectives of the Lesson: To become familiar with the Matlab working environment, and its syntax. To learn how to plot simple wave-functions. To solve several of the Homework Problems using Matlab. MATLAB Environment, Syntax, and Plottin
