Contour Plots

To visualize the nodal lines and [3], we use a contour plot. Because the wave function can be defined outside the quantum dot and the arms through interpolation, we can use the built-in function ContourPlot on a rectangular region containing and then cover the parts not belonging to with white polygons. The function makeReImAbsContourPlot shows the curves in red and the curves in blue. The underlying gray level contour plot shows the probability density.

Here is this contour plot for our example function.
