Courses: Intro to Quantum Mechanics (PHYSB214002)

Spring 2011

Class Number: 2375
An introduction to the principles governing systems at the atomic scale and below. Topics include the experimental basis of quantum mechanics, wave-particle duality, Schr dinger s equation and its solutions, the time dependence of quantum states, angular momentum in the microscopic world, simple atoms, and atomic nuclei. Recent developments, such as paradoxes calling attention to the counter-intuitive aspects of quantum physics, will be discussed. The laboratory involves quantum mechanics, solid state physics, and optics experiments. Lecture three hours, laboratory three hours. Prerequisite: PHYS 201, MATH 201. Corequisite: MATH 203.
