Advanced quantum mechanics

HomeSyllabus Lectures Readings

Quantum mechanics gradually arose from theories to explain observations which could not be reconciled with classical physics, such as Max Planck’s solution in 1900 to the black-body radiation problem, and from the correspondence between energy and frequency in Albert Einstein’s 1905 paper which explained the photoelectric effect. Early quantum theory was profoundly re-conceived in the mid-1920s by Erwin Schrödinger, Werner Heisenberg, Max Born and others. The modern theory is formulated in various specially developed mathematical formalisms. In one of them, a mathematical function, the wave function, provides information about the probability amplitude of energy, momentum, and other physical properties of a particle.

In Advanced View of this course we shall see scattering theory, perturbation theory and etc amazing topics. Let’s get to the point!
