Time-dependent simulation of open and closed quantum systems
WavePacket is a program package for numerical simulation of quantum-mechanical wavepacket dynamics for distinguishable particles. It can be used to solve one or more (i.e. coupled channels) 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 simulate modern experiments using ultrashort light pulses in photo-induced physics or chemistry. WavePacket is especially suitable for teaching of quantum mechanics as well as for research projects in physics, chemistry, and scientific computing. 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.

Dynamics of quantum systems, controlled by external fields
WavePacket is a program package for numerical simulation of quantum-mechanical wavepacket dynamics for distinguishable particles. It can be used to solve one or more (i.e. coupled channels) 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 simulate modern experiments using ultrashort light pulses in photo-induced physics or chemistry, including quantum optimal control. The graphical capabilities allow visualization 'on the fly', including Wigner transforms to phase space. A description of WavePacket can be found in our manuscript at http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.cpc.2016.12.007. For examples / movies, see also the Wiki pages of the WavePacket main project. First established in 2004, the present Matlab version is in a stable, mature state. Further development mainly by Burkhard Schmidt at Free University Berlin

Software for analysis of patch-clamp recordings and other wave data
This program was designed mainly for preconditioning and analysis of electrophysiological data, including patch-clamp and 2-electrode voltage clamp recordings. The program includes tools both for basic analysis of whole-cell recordings or analysis of single channel properties. Program can display and analyse long traces incuding many sweeps, series and even groups simultaneously. Current amplitudes or time intervals are easily measured. Single channel conductance, kinetics, NPo, as well as number of channels in a patch and their open probability may be estimated with the analysis of dwelling time at each conductance level. The program directly reads files, created by Pulse and PatchMaster software (HEKA Elektronik Dr. Schulze GmbH) as well as ASCII files. However, the program may be useful in various applications when editing and measurements in a 2-dimentional (for example time-current) wave are required.
