Abstract:
The path integral formalism gives a very illustrative and
intuitive understanding of quantum mechanics but due to 
its difficult sum over phases one usually prefers
Schroedinger's approach. We will show that it is possible
to calculate simple quantum phenomena by performing 
Feynman's sum over all paths staying entirely in real time.
Once the propagator is obtained it is particularly easy 
to get the energy spectrum or the evolution of any 
wavefunction.
