This software accompanies the textbook "Quantum Wells, Wires and Dots" (3rd Edition), Paul Harrison, Wiley, Chichester (2009).

It is adapted (by the same authors) from code that was originally supplied on a CD with the first edition of the book [1] and is now made available under the GPL3 license. In brief, we encourage everyone to use the software in your studies and research, to study and modify the source-code and to share it widely. However, you are not permitted to include any of our code in a closed-source project.
