Time reversal Sakurai 4, Shankar 11 17 April — Symmetries: This the third quarter of a one year graduate level course. Matt Luzum, Aug 14, , 9: Students should also have a good background in mathematics, including linear algebra and complex analysis. Relativistic Quantum Mechanics 2. Sakurai, “Modern Quantum Mechanics”, chapter numbers refer to Revised edition, not second edition Other texts. This policy is an exception to the normal university rule about doing your own work.
Thus a student who has not seen some particular idea or method will be able to learn it in this course. Second quantization, field operators, operators in second quantized form. Matt Luzum, Oct 23, , 1: Matt Luzum, Aug 27, , Matt Luzum, May 29, , Matt Luzum, Nov 21, , 4:
Weinberg, Lectures on Quantum Mechanics Evaluation.
However, material can be shifted around depending on time. Matt Luzum, Aug 27, Homework problems will be posted on the download page. I will start from the beginning and develop the major ideas of quantum mechanics.
Gauge invariance, the Dirac equation in standard representation, Free-particle solution. Matt Luzum, May 18,7: Normally, Wednesdays will be used for problem solving sessions. Shankar, Principles of Quantum Mechanics.
Matt Luzum, Aug 28,9: Relativistic Quantum Mechanics 1. Lectures are scheduled for Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, 2: Matt Luzum, Oct 23,1: Matt Luzum, May 3,5: Sakurai, “Modern Quantum Mechanics”, chapter numbers refer to Revised edition, not second edition Other texts. Matt Luzum, Aug 21, Second quantization, chapfer operators, operators in second quantized form. Matt Luzum, Apr 19, However, the pace will be too fast for a student who has not seen any of the ideas and methods.
