This exercise takes students briefly through the Heisenberg representation and Ehrenfest's theorem, then students explore the time-dependence of superposition states and their expectation values in the harmonic oscillator potential.
In particular, students can explore a coherent state as well as an amplitude-squeezed state.
Note that there are two flow files needed for this exercise. Both are linked below.
Key words and phrases: Expectation values, squeezing, coherent states, harmonic oscillator, time-dependence
