With Fetterman's election as the first hoodie and shorts guy, I feel seen.

@SweaterVest I do this to when someone asks me to do something 😂

@mrvanloh I think I really like mastodon for the fact that if another instance tolerates, that crap, I can block the instance, and I have affectively taken care of a large portion of people that I would have blocked individually.

I have finally committed to learning . I got it all set up, some keybinds, and a basic workflow. 😁

@DavidDvorkin yeah I said that too… now I have to wake up extra early to a homework done 😅

@josh That sounds like a great evening! I should turn off the news 😅

Voted, worked on a funding proposal.... now gata get some homework done!!!

@JamesHMcLaren All I did was implement the solution to the time-independent Schrödinger equation! The rest of the behavior evolves out of the solution for the time-dependent equation. (See photo)

In general, the wave will 'want' to dissipate but because there are potential barriers (that in this simulation can not penetrate), the whole wave will spread out in the box and self-interact. So you are seeing constructive and destructive interference. The wave equation itself is a combination of stationary waves that will have different frequencies. Because these are all re-calculated for each time frame, it is the case that the frequency of the probability density will change with time as well.

@JamesHMcLaren What you are seeing is the probability amplitude of where the particle might be; The wave does interact with itself! The initial localization is a hand-crafted solution in order for it to have some initial shape. As it progresses and encounters the potential barrier, and will be reflected which causes the complicated interaction.

oh no not me spending 45 minutes of my therapy session trying to explain Fourier transforms to my therapist

Good morning! Another day of studying for exams and doing homework! :ablobderpy:

Made a cool little animation of particle in a box. Learning quantum is an interesting ride..

Every Mastodon explanation is like "It's very simple, your account is part of a kerflunk, and each kerflunk can talk to each other as part of a bumblurt. At the moment everyone you flurgle can see your bloops but only people IN your kerflunk can quark your nerps. Kinda like email."
