Hello, I am learning how to use Mathematica's built in numerical solver of partial diff equations (NDSolve). I was trying to solve Schrodinger's Equation for a particle in a 1-D infinite square well (y[0]==0, y[1]==0). The analytic solution is: y[x] == A Sin[k x] where k = n Pi. Using NDSolve, however, the only solution given is the trivial A == 0. Is there anyway that I can get mathematica to quantize the solution and avoid the trivial solution? Thank you, Elvis Dieguez University of Miami
