    Greetings again,

    I am currently amusing myself by creating a simulation of an atom using C# and Unity 3D, however I find that I am not comfortable enough with Schrölinger's Equation to properly code it !
    Do You have any good source material You could refer to Me?
    Or better yet, are You good with these equations and can be found on Skype with ease?

    Any help would be appreciated,
    Thank You

    -The Overlord

    Schrölinger or Schrödinger? I've never heard of the former.

    Schrodinger's equation isn't a simple thing, unfortunately. You'll need to be familiar with partial differential equations, separation of variables, a few advanced techniques for solving differential equations, and calculus in spherical polar coordinates if you want to solve it for a single-electron atom.

    The above link breaks it down fairly well. You might want to take a step back and review the basic textbook problems, like the particle in a box (make it a 2D box for some separation-of-variables fun), or the simple harmonic oscillator potential before you try tackling this. If the maths is still over your head, hyperphysics has the normalised solutions up to n=3, which you can just plug right in to your model.

    I'm uncomfortable with it too -- since I don't understand it at all. But then, I've only had CALC I, II, III and DiffEq and a few other college math courses -- and those were quite a few years ago. Probably no where near enough math.

    Run the programs & place your computer into a box along with a cat then close the lid. The cat will either program it for you or not but you will be unable to know which until you remove the lid. Cats are awesome like that XD

    (sry, couldnt help myself)
