Goal of the course | The course is intended for third-year undergraduates and its purpose is to give a rather complete presentation of non-relativistic quantum mechanics. |

Syllabus | Basic principles of quantum mechanics: dynamical variables, theory of measurement, equations of motion. (Trahanas, Chapter 1, 3 weeks) Mathematical formalism of quantum mechanics: Hilbert spaces, operators, Dirac Formalism, Pictures and representations, symmetry transformations. (Trahanas, Chapters 2-4, 2 weeks) Simple dynamical systems: free particle, one-dimensional potentials, harmonic oscillator. (Trahanas, Chapter 5, 2 weeks) Angular momentum, central potentials, angular momentum operators, algebraic theory of angular momentum, solutions to equations of motion, hydrogen atom. (Trahanas, Chapter 6, 3 weeks) Spin and identical particles. Description of spin, Pauli matrices, Spin/Statistics (Trahanas, Chapters 7-8, 2 weeks) Introduction to perturbation theory: Types of perturbations, general methodology, simple applications. (Trahanas, Chapter 9, 1 week) |
