Quantum Mechanics

Course Number: 
PHY-405
Minimum Credits: 
4
An in-depth development of the theory of non-relativistic quantum mechanics with supporting experimental and computational investigations. The course includes developing the Schr dinger formulation, methods of solving the Schr dinger equation, applications to one-dimensional problems, quantum theory of angular momentum, the hydrogen atom, and systems of identical particles. Selected supporting experiments and computational projects will be performed. Completing the course allows the student to describe interpretation issues of quantum theory, make theoretical calculations involving the Schr dinger equation, and describe the experimental evidence supporting non-relativistic quantum theory. Prerequisites: PHY 107, 108 or 201,202, MTH 337.
