5.73 Introductory Quantum Mechanics I


Class Info

Presents the fundamental concepts of quantum mechanics: wave properties, uncertainty principles, Schrodinger equation, and operator and matrix methods. Includes applications to one-dimensional potentials (harmonic oscillator), three-dimensional centrosymetric potentials (hydrogen atom), and angular momentum and spin. Approximation methods include WKB, variational principle, and perturbation theory.

This class has 5.61, 8.03, and 18.03 as prerequisites.

5.73 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by R. G. Griffin.

Lecture occurs 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in NW14-1112.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
