PHYS 351 - Quantum Mechanics II


Units: 3
Topics of study include the general theory of angular momentum and addition of angular momentum, entanglement, three-dimensional potentials, the hydrogen atom, and approximation methods in quantum mechanics with an emphasis on time-independent and time-dependent perturbation theory.

Prerequisites: PHYS 350.
Possible Instructional Methods: On-ground.
Grading: A-F or CR/NC (student choice).
Course Typically Offered: Variable Intermittently


Student Learning Outcomes - Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:
 

  1. Students will be able to solve problems involving the addition of angular momentum and explain the concept of quantum entanglement.
  2. Students will be able to solve problems such as the hydrogen atom involving three-dimensional potentials.
  3. Students will be able to use perturbation theory to calculate corrections to energies and eigenstates of various quantum systems.
