The time-dependent scattering of one-dimensional Gaussian wave packets of various energies incident on (1) a square potential barrier and (2) a square well is examined numerically, using the quantum potential introduced by Bohm. The time-dependent quantum potential is calculated in each case, and the results displayed on three-dimensional computer plots. The particle trajectories from different initial positions within the wave packet are also shown, giving a detailed description of reflection and tunneling in terms of ...
