Quantum Mechanics I

Session: Fall 2014 (9/02-12/10)
Instructor: Mikhail Voloshin (e-mail: voloshin @
Time: 1115 MWF
Location: MechE 102

Part I of a year-long course sequence in quantum mechanics for first-year graduate students in physics and other fields. Familiarity with quantum mechanics at the level of an upper division undergraduate physics course in the subject, such as Physics 4101, will be assumed. The course will include such topics as the Schroedinger Equation and the general formalism of quantum mechanics, bound state and scattering problems in one and three dimensions, angular momentum, the hydrogen atom, approximation methods in stationary and time dependent problems, and the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with atoms.
