Quantum Mechanics I

PHYSICS 523

Provides a treatment of quantum mechanics based on experimental observations that clarify its mathematical framework and interpretation as developed by Dirac while establishing the link with wave mechanics. Discussion of continuous symmetries: translation and rotation invariance, quantum dynamics including propagators and path integrals, quantum theory of angular momentum and rotation groups, Bell's inequality. Emphasis is on applications and (numerical) solutions to problems of current physical interest. Prerequisite: Phys 217 or 471 or equivalent.
