Basic Principles of Quantum Mechanics

CHM 501

Info tab content
Basic quantum mechanical concepts at a rigorous level appropriate for graduate students in experimental and theoretical physical chemistry, applied physics and engineering. Topics include: (i) mathematical formalism of quantum mechanics and operators in time-independent and time-dependent quantum theory; (ii) exactly soluble systems: single spin, harmonic oscillator and hydrogen atom; (iii) time-independent perturbation theory; (iv) the variational theorem; (v) time-dependent perturbation theory with selected applications; (vi) indistinguishable particles.
