PHY 360: Quantum Mechanics

Fall 2009


Text: Introduction to Quantum Mechanics (2nd edition) by David Griffiths and Physlet Quantum Physics by Mario Belloni, Wolfgang Christian, and Anne Cox.
Lecture: T,Th 10:00-11:15 (Required)
Office Hours: MW 1:30-2:30, F 11:30-12:30, and Th 11:15-12:15 and other times by appointment.  You can usually find me in the Dana building from 8:00 to 5:00. I teach Introductory Physics MW from 10:30 to 11:30 and I reserve the hour before this lecture and before Quantum Mechanics lecture for my own class preparation.
Help sessions: Students sometimes request that I have informal (and optional) evening help sessions.  No new material is covered.  I rely on on students to guide the discussion of topics.  These sessions are most popular before a major review but they can be scheduled whenever there is sufficient interest.

Description: Phy360

Quantum Mechanics with applications to exactly solvable systems. 

Prerequisites: Intermediate Mechanics (Phy 330) and Electricity and Magnetism (Phy 350)

The successful student will obtain a thorough introduction to the theory Quantum Mechanics including:
