MATH.5330 Mathematical Methods in Quantum Mechanics

Id: 042468 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


The course aims to give a brief and self-contained introduction to the mathematical methods of quantum mechanics. Although the materials are related to physics, they are presented in a more mathematical way so that students will have a chance to see frontiers in mathematical physics research. The first part of the course shows the route from Newton (classical mechanics) to Schrodinger (quantum mechanics). The second part emphasizes on functional analysis and spectral theory. The last part will focus on spectral theory of Schrodinger operators.
