PHYS 380 - Quantum Mechanics

Description
A study of the concepts of quantum mechanics with an emphasis on mathematical analysis. The course begins with an introduction to the Schrodinger equation and the formalism of quantum mechanics. Dirac representation, Hilbert space, and Hermitian operators are introduced. Quantum mechanical systems are compared with classical systems and discussed with respect to quantum mechanical uncertainty, time development and conservation theorems. Various applications of quantum mechanics are considered. Prerequisites: PHYS*210 or CHEM*242, and PHYS*272 or equivalent. Distribution Requirements: QR, SP.
