PHY 335 Quantum Mechanics

Prerequisite: PHY 213 and PHY 235 or permission of Department.

Course Description: The course will review the Bohr theory of the hydrogen atom, introduce the Schroedinger equation and apply it to the atomic systems. The methods of quantum mechanics will be demonstrated in one dimensional potentials and hydrogen-like systems. The interpretation of the mathematical formalism in terms of physical observables will be emphasized. The time-dependent Schroedinger equation and the Heisenberg matrix methods will be introduced.

Course Rotation: PLV: Fall - Odd years.
