It has been suggested that the nonlinear Schrodinger–Newton equation might approximate the coupling of quantum mechanics with gravitation, particularly in the context of the Moller–Rosenfeld semiclassical theory. Numerical results for the spherically symmetric, time-dependent, single-particle case are presented, clarifying and extending previous work on the subject. It is found that, for a particle mass greater than 1.14(2/(Gσ))1/3, a wave packet of width σ partially 'collapses' to a… Expand
