WavePacket (C++)



WavePacket is a program package for numerical simulation of quantum-mechanical wavepacket dynamics of distinguishable particles. It can be used to solve single or coupled time-independent or time-dependent (linear) Schrödinger and Liouville-von Neumann-equations. Optionally accounting for the interaction with external electric fields within the semiclassical dipole approximation, WavePacket can be used to simulate modern experiments involving ultrashort light pulses in photo-induced physics or chemistry. WavePacket is suitable for teaching quantum mechanics as well as for research projects in physics and chemistry.

The present C++ version is an object-oriented rewrite of the existing Matlab version aiming to be more flexible. In particular, the goals are easy handling of open and closed systems and support for unusual setups.


  • Time-dependent/-independent Schroedinger equation.
  • Arbitrary open systems (Liouville von Neumann equations)
  • Object-oriented code in C++
  • Latest version 0.2.4 released on 28-Apr-2019
  • More than 650 downloads in 2016
