PHYS.6165 Graduate Quantum Mechanics

Id: 041534 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


This single-semester course assumes prior exposure to quantum mechanics and is designed to train students in more complex concepts and tools of quantum mechanics. The topics include mathematical framework of complex vector spaces, exactly solvable systems such as harmonic oscillator and spin-half, path integral formalism, continuous and discrete symmetries, gauge invariance and quantum Hall effect ,time-independent and time-dependent perturbation theory, second quantization of many-body quantum systems. The aim of the course is to provide foundational conceptual and technical background requisite for advanced elective courses, such as quantum Information, quantum optics, quantum field theory, and/or quantum many-body physics. Students can get credit for either PHYS.6165 or for PHYS.6150/PHYS.6160 Sequence.


PHYS.5350 Introductory Quantum Mechanics I, and PHYS.5360 Inrodutory Quantum Mechanics II, or Permission of Instructor.
