PH484 (Version: 2020 1) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
PH484 INTERMEDIATE QUANTUM MECHANICS 2020 1 Physics and Nuclear Engineering 3.0 (BS=3.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This is the first in a two-course sequence in Quantum Mechanics. This course begins with a basic introduction to the fundamental postulates of quantum theory. These postulates are then used to develop Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and Schroedinger's equation. Solutions to Schroedinger's equation are sought, first for relatively simple systems such as square wells and harmonic oscillators, and then for the hydrogen atom. The properties of the hydrogen atom are studied in detail. The course also covers approximation methods used for physical systems with small perturbing forces acting on them.
