AEP 3610 - Introductory Quantum Mechanics


     
Fall. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite: PHYS 2214  or PHYS 2218 . Corequisite: AEP 4200 . Co-meets with AEP 5610 .

G. Fuchs.

Introductory course in quantum mechanics. Topics include Schrodinger’s equation and the statistical interpretation of the wavefunction, potentials in 1 to 3 dimensions, Dirac notation and Hilbert space, ladder operators for harmonic potentials and angular momentum, exact solutions for the hydrogen atom and spin systems. Emphasis is on developing both an intuitive understanding of quantum mechanics and how to apply it rigorously.
